"These proceedings provide an excellent overview of a vibrant community of scientists from South and Centarl America and an appreciation of the kind of science being done there. If this volume facilitates linkage of these workers with similar minded colleagues from other parts of the world, then the publication of these proceedings will have been well worth it."
