As previously announced, a thematic ISHPSSB off-year workshop on 
"Natural History and Evolution Just Before Darwin" will be held in 
the city of Itu, Sao Paulo State, Brazil, from 7 to 9 December 2008. 
This workshop is included in the series of events commemorating the 
second centennial of Darwin's birthday and the sesquicentennial of 
publication of "The Origin of Species." Its subject is the period 
preceding the publication of Darwin's fundamental works. The invited 
speakers who confirmed their presence are Richard Burkhardt, Thomas 
F. Glick and Nelson Papavero.

Scholars interested in presenting a paper should submit an abstract
