Francisco Dallmeier was born in Caracas, Venezuela, where at an early age he discovered a life-long passion for living creatures. His interest in biology carried him from extensive fieldwork with the Institute of Tropical Zoology in Venezuela to the Smithsonian's Monitoring and Assessment of Biodiversity Program (MAB). Since 1986, he has directed this program's evolution and tremendous growth. Now consisting of a network of more than 300 research plots throughout North America, Latin America, Asia, and Africa, the MAB Program combines research, training, and public education and outreach to forge a powerful tool for the conservation of biodiversity around the world. Alfonso Alonso is the Managing Director of the Center for Conservation Education and Sustainability at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute where he focuses on sustainable development, mitigation of impacts of development on biodiversity, and integration of science and biodiversity research with resource extraction operations. He is also on the faculty of the recently established Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation.
