WELCOME!

 

I would first like to welcome all of the “COMFAUNA Community of Scientists” and Neo-tropical animal “aficionados” to the XICIMFAUNA. You have been a committed group of individuals who have kept your focus on Amazonian, Latin American and Neo-tropical animals. Secondly I would like to welcome all newcomers to the CIMFAUNA. It has been a special privilege for us in Trinidad and Tobago to have been allowed by the COMFAUNA community to be given the opportunity to host the Congress for the first time outside of the South American continent. I would like to thank you for putting your trust in us. The collaborators within the Open Tropical Forage-Animal Production Laboratory [OTF-APL], Department of Food Production [DFP], Faculty of Food and Agriculture [FFA] of the University of the West Indies [UWI], The University of Trinidad and Tobago [UTT] and the Ministry of Food Production of Trinidad and Tobago [MFPT&T] have tried our best to make this a good Congress for you to attend. At this XICIMFAUNA we have attempted to have the Mini-courses/Mini-coursos focus on the intensive production of some key Neo-tropical animal species. This is the topic to be covered by the Feature Presentation or First “Ponencia Magistral”/“Palestra Magna”/”Expert Lecture” of this conference. I close by drawing your attention to the XICIMFAUNA Logo that represents the integration of the “animals” and the “culture” of Trinidad and Tobago. The “Steel Pan”, which is the National Instrument of Trinidad and Tobago, was developed here in the Neo-tropics in Trinidad and Tobago specifically. The “animals” are also truly neo-tropical.   I hope that you will enjoy the XICIMFAUNA and that it would be a memorable experience for you.

¡BIENVENIDOS!

 

Primero que todo, quiero dar la bienvenida a todos de la Comunidad de Científicos de COMFAUNA y a los aficionados de animales Neo-tropicales al XICIMFAUNA. Ustedes forman un grupo de individuos extremamente comprometido cuyo enfoque se ha concentrado en animales de la Amazona, América Latina y las zonas Neo-trópicas. En segundo lugar, me gustaría dar la bienvenida a todos los recién llegados al CIMFAUNA. Para nosotros de Trinidad y Tobago, es nuestro privilegio ser el país anfitrión para el Congreso este año, que por primera vez se realizará fuera del continente Sudamericano. A la comunidad COMFAUNA, le agradecemos por otorgarnos esta oportunidad y por confiar en nosotros. Los colaboradores del Open Tropical Forage-Animal Production Laboratory [OTF-APL], Department of Food Production [DFP], Faculty of Food and Agriculture [FFA] de The University of the West Indies [UWI], The University of Trinidad and Tobago [UTT] y el Ministry of Food Production de la República de Trinidad y Tobago [MFP] han hecho todo lo posible para que este Congreso sea exitoso. En este XICIMFAUNA, hemos diseñado los Mini-cursos con el fin de enfocarse en la producción intensiva de algunas especies animales Neo-tropicales claves. Este es el tema que será abordado en la Primera "Ponencia Magistral" de esta conferencia. A modo de cierre, les llamo la atención al logotipo del XICIMFAUNA que representa la integración de los "animales" y la "cultura" de Trinidad y Tobago. El "Steel Pan” (tambor de acero), el instrumento nacional de Trinidad y Tobago fue elaborado acá en los Neo-trópicos. Los "animales" también son verdaderamente Neo-tropicales. Espero que ustedes aprovechen del XICIMFAUNA y que sea una experiencia inolvidable para ustedes.

BEM VINDOS!

 

Em primeiro lugar, quero dar as boas vindas a toda a comunidade científica do COMFAUNA e aos apaixonados por animais Neo-tropicais participantes do XICIMFAUNA. Vocês formam um grupo de indivíduos extremamente comprometidos e que tem como foco o estudo de animais da Amazônia, da América Latina e da Região Neo-tropical. Em segundo lugar, eu quero dar as boas vindas aos que participam pela primeira vez de um CIMFAUNA. É um privilégio para nós de Trinidad e Tobago que o COMFAUNA nos tenha dado a oportunidade de sediar o congresso que, pela primeira vez, ocorre fora da América do Sul. Eu quero agradecer pela confiança depositada em nós. Colaboradores de diversos órgãos, como Open Tropical Forage-Animal Production Laboratory [OTF-APL], Department of Food Production [DFP], Faculty of Food and Agriculture [FFA] da University of the West Indies [UWI], The University of Trinidad and Tobago [UTT] e do Ministry of Food Production [MFP], dedicaram-se ao máximo para viabilizar este congresso. Para este XICIMFAUNA programamos diversos mini-cursos, focados na produção intensiva de algumas das espécies-chave de animais Neo-tropicais. Este será o tópico da Palestra Magna desta conferência. Chamo atenção para a logomarca do XICIMFAUNA que representa a integração entre os “animais” e  a “ cultura” de Trinidad e Tobago. O tambor de aço (steel pan), que é o Instrumento Nacional de Trinidad e Tobago foi desenvolvido aqui nos Neo-trópicos. Os “animais” também são verdadeiramente Neo-tropicais. Espero que todos aproveitem ao máximo o XICIMFAUNA e que esta seja uma experiência memorável para vocês.
