About the R-Latin America image

This illustration for this BoF is by Allison Horst, based on ideas and feedback from Laura Ación (@lacion), Marcela Alfaro (@Fichulina), Yanina Bellini (@yabellini & twitter:yabellini), Juliana Benitez (our ornithologist!, an expert in birds @July_Benitezs), Elio Campitelli (@d_olivaw), Paola Corrales (@PaobCorrales), Florencia D'Andrea (@cantoflor_87), Natalia da Silva (@pacocuak), Priscilla Minotti (@pmnatural); Riva Quiroga (@rivaquiroga), Vilma Romero (@vilsurr), Gabriela Sandoval (@GabySandovalM) and Heather Turner (@HeathrTurnr).

These people are from Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, Perú, Uruguay and UK and belong to R-Ladies Chapters and R-User Groups in these countries. The final picture was chosen by a vote of the LatinR Conference Community.

From Allison Horst,

  • The bird is the chingolo (Zonotrichia capensis) because it seemed to be the bird that encompassed most Latin American countries, and is also unique to Latin America
  • It is standing on a tilde ("~") branch
  • The "~" branch consists of stripes for every color included in flags for Latin American countries
  • The shape of Latin America is included on the bird itself
  • A bright green background to represent the incredible biodiversity of the region
