This competition makes it possible to award early-career biogeographers (i.e. students or those who have obtained their PhD no longer than 3 years ago) who presented a poster during the IBS 2015 conference. This year we had 202 posters competing and 55 scientists volunteered as poster judges.
The prizes were awarded in the Closing Ceremony on Sunday afternoon. They were organized by Carolina Tovar, Sandra Nogué and Leticia Ochoa-Ochoa on behalf of the Early-Career Committee.
