“M’ammalia. A week dedicated to mammals” is entering its fifth edition, which will take place from the 25th of October to the 3rd of November 2013 and will be dedicated to “Discovering Mammal Biogeography”, a special edition to celebrate the 100th year from the death of Alfred Russel Wallace, father of biogeography“.
The event is, as always, organised by the Italian Mammal Society (ATIt) and the Associazione Nazionale Musei Scientifici, Orti Botanici, Giardini Zoologici e Acquari (ANMS). This year, however, we have a new crew member on board: Gaianews.it – Notizie su ambiente, salute e ricerca scientifica that represents the official media partner for the event.
The event, that will take place from the 25th of October to the 3rd of November, will be characterised by seminars, short films, exhibitions and guided tours all focused on actively promoting peculiar aspects of mammal biology, conservation issues, the role of museums in awareness campaigns and research, monitoring techniques and mammal management, and interactions between mammals and human activity.
