CETAF Information and Press
All our resources, from collections to researchers collaborate to enhance the status and quality of science.
The taxonomic facilities of CETAF play a key role in the scientific scenario by ensuring the opening of new lines of research, the support to the fundamental research that facilitates further innovative results, and the development of our knowledge and expertise. This jointly means that CETAF, mainly through its Members institutions, offers a constant flow of information, documents and papers, to press and communication services, that showcase the works carried out in the different research centres.

The logo is inspired by a phylogenetic tree, a commonly used tool to represent taxonomic linkage and the interrelationships between different types of organisms.
In the same logic, the different branches in the CETAF logo represent the complexity of the work carried by CETAF and its Member Institutions.
The CETAF logo merges a figurative mark and the CETAF acronym. The five sub-layers of our logo’s taxonomic tree represent the 5 letters of CETAF. The font used was specially conceived for this logo, which allows for consistency in the geometry of the logo. The inner circle that marks the starting point of the taxonomic symbol also shapes the C of the acronym CETAF.
