The 2nd International Meeting on Behavior, Ecology, and Evolution - in a changing world (IMBEE) - is the first event promoted by PPG-Biodiversidade of the Universidade Federal de Juiz de Fora (UFJF).

The current world scenario presents a series of challenges. Among them, we ask ourselves how to do science and access education in a changing world. However, technology offers us possibilities, such as internationalization. Thus, IMBEE emerged, as a virtual event to put you in direct contact with some great international researches in the fields of Animal Behavior, Ecology, and Evolution. Enjoy it!
