COURSE TITLE: ARGENTINA: THE GREATEST KALEIDOSCOPE OF WETLANDS IN SOUTH AMERICA

INSTRUCTORS Dr. Juan José Neiff

COURSE DESCRIPTION ARGENTINA: THE GREATEST KALEIDOSCOPE OF WETLANDS IN SOUTH AMERICA
Presented by:Juan José Neiff

ABSTRACT
This presentation provides a synoptic view of the continental waters of Argentina and an explanation of their spatial and temporal variability.
The subject includes the area between 23- and 55-degrees South Latitude, and between 71- and 53-degrees West Longitude. Due to its latitudinal development and position on the map of South America, there are unique climatic gradients which have been principal in the organization of surface water biota. The elevation gradient from the Andes Mountains, at 3000 meters above sea level, to the Atlantic Ocean, creates another driver of variability when considering biodiversity. Extreme climate change has been reported throughout the history of South America, shaping the morphology of continental aquatic environments and must be considered in the context of Global Climate Change. There are also numerous marine inflows that have a marked influence on the characteristics of inland waters. We will look at the aquatic environments of Argentina, as if looking at a limnogeographic kaleidoscope.

BIO
Juan José Neiff is a professor and doctor of Biology at the Universidad Nacional del Nordeste (Argentina). He was Professor of Ecology at the Universidad Nacional del Nordeste and Univ. Nacional de Formosa (Argentina). He was also researcher at the Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas de Argentina, leading CECOAL (Centro de Ecología Aplicada del Litoral) for 30 years. He is internationally recognized for his scientific contributions to the knowledge of South American wetlands and the functioning of large rivers. He is currently involved in environmental research and consultancy.
