CETroB Goals

  • to foster collaboration among tropical biologists of Miami and the Smithsonian Institution in research, training, and educational activities
  • to publicize Miami in conjunction with the National Museum of Natural History as a world class research, education and training center in tropical biology, with enormous collective resources to share with a wide audience
  • to provide a formally recognized mechanism through which local universities, museums, and research institutes along with the Smithsonian can interact with one another on an ongoing and regular basis
  • to engage foreign scientists in educational and research activities both in South Florida and at the Smithsonian Institution
