M'ammalia - a week dedicated to mammals

M’ammalia 2013 – Discovering Mammal Biogeography

“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.

To better support a wider and more fruitful cooperation with both individuals and more structured third parties, and with the intent of highlighting the quirks and local specificities that distinguish each collection, museum or natural area,

M’ammalia will be promoted directly by those that have decided to adhere to the event, who will be able to receive support directly from the ATIt and ANMS.

The ATIt and ANMS will provide support aimed at helping the organisation and also finding potential speakers that can promote and manage the single events but that lack their own mammalogy research group.

Interested participants must comunicate the nature and title of their event with a short descriptive text before the 3rd of October 2011 to the ATIt Secretary, Stefania Mazzaracca. All participants will receive an introductory powerpoint presentation of “M’ammalia. A week dedicated to Mammals”
