XIII International Pollination Course

The international pollination course is a longstanding biannual field course aimed at training graduate, advanced undergraduate and professionals, working with pollination ecology and floral biology. In 2019 the course will take place at Diamantina in the State of Minas Gerais from September 28th to October 6th. The course is organised by a permanent core team (André Rodrigo Rech – UFVJM, Kayna Agostini – UFSCar – Araras; Marina Wolowski – UNIFAL-MG; Vinicius L. G. Brito – UFU; Patrícia Alves Ferreira – USP and Pietro Kyioshi Maruyama – UFU) and receives National and International contributions at every edition. The main objectives of the course are to present and discuss different ecological and evolutive aspects of pollination biology, develop the student’s ability to generate novel interesting hypotheses related to the topic and to develop the skills to design experiments that allow to test such hypotheses under field conditions.
