Summary

CHICAGO-- Brazil's tropical rainforests, biological diversity, and freshwater resources are among the world's largest. On 10 and 11 May, more than 100 environmental scientists, anthropologists, archaeologists, geologists, and government officials gathered at Chicago's Field Museum to discuss the status of these exceptional resources and how to preserve them. Many talks focused on what can be learned from historical land use and what the priorities for modern conservation should be.
