Time: 09.30 – 17.30

Borneo is the third largest island in the world, and well-known as a centre of extreme biodiversity. This year Dr Jeremy Holloway completes his 18-volume monographic series "Moths of Borneo", and his achievement is being honoured with a symposium held at the Museum.

As well as honouring the completion of Jeremy’s monumental work, the meeting is an opportunity to explore how we can develop collaborative biodiversity research in "hotspots" such as Borneo, in particular by building upon existing local partnerships, at both scientist and government level.
