SEMILLERO DE INVESTIGACIÓN EN ECOFISIOLOGÍA Y BIOGEOGRAFÍA DE VERTEBRADOS

(EcoBioVert)

Associated with Grupo de Investigación en Biodiversidad y Desarrollo Amazónico, Universidad de la Amazonia (Colombia)

Created in 2020 from the initiative of biology students from the University of the Amazon. EcoBioVert aims to contribute to the academic and scientific training of young researchers in areas such as the physiology, ecology and biogeography of Neotropical vertebrates.

For more details about students and projects, see the people and projects section. Thanks!

What do we do?

ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

Sharing knowledge through simple ideas is the best way to promote change. For this reason, we show the importance of various groups of vertebrates in the Neotropics. Through talks, scientific divulgation and others, we show our passion for science and nature, in addition to the importance of conservation.

As we know, many organisms are affected by human settlements. Thus, many times some communities do not know how to deal with some organisms (for example, snakes), so they can be subjected to some risks. These risks affect both humans and animals. We, taking advantage of our knowledge with fauna, we support ourselves with environmental institutions to facilitate the rehabilitation and relocation of some animals in their natural environment.

WILDLIFE RESCUE

We invest our time in creating knowledge about the ecology, physiology and biogeography of amphibians and reptiles that are distributed in the Neotropics. Through scientific articles we have detailed aspects of the life history of some species, as well as the ecological and physiological relationships that some species have with their habitat. We hope to explore aspects of the evolutionary history of species distributed in the Colombian Amazon in the future, in order to fill the sampling gap in this great South American biome. 

SCIENCE

BeFunky-collage-3_edited.jpg

In general terms, we conducted inventories to determine the distribution and composition of wildlife. Also, we studied the wildlife habitats in areas where information is lacking, monitoring to understand the changes and the effects of management practices on wildlife populations and habitats.
