  • 34 Hillhouse Avenue (map)

Join Lê Đức Minh, an Associate Professor of Vietnam National University and a Research Associate of the American Museum of Natural History, for a seminar on conservation in Vietnam. Minh D. Le has been working on conservation-related issues in Southeast Asia for more than 17 years. His work focuses on biotic survey, wildlife trade, and conservation genetics of various wildlife groups in Indochina. He is currently working on projects which characterize genetic diversity of highly threatened reptiles and mammals in the region. He also pioneers the application of molecular tools in surveying critically endangered species in Vietnam. Minh has long been involved in studying the impact of the wildlife trade on biodiversity conservation in Vietnam, and is developing a multidisciplinary framework to address the issue in the country.
