Vicki Funk Memorial – Student Travel Fund
It is with great sadness that the International Biogeography Society (IBS) records the death of one of our founding members, Professor Vicki Funk [Smithsonian notice: https://www.facebook.com/SmithsonianNMNH/posts/10156840027663230]. Vicki was the fourth president of the IBS and its first female president. She brought great vision, enthusiasm and direction to the role and remained a highly committed member of the society for many years following her term of office. In honour of Vicki’s great contribution to the society and her life-long role in promoting the importance of biogeography globally, we have set up a student travel fund in her name. If you would like to contribute to this fund, please do so via the ‘donate’ button below.
