Worldwide the African Wild Dog (Lycaon pictus, endangered species) population is in decline (IUCN 2020). One of the biggest natural threats to wild dogs is competition with larger dominant carnivores (interspecific competition) (Woodroffe and Sillero-Zubiri 2012).

Argentina

Isla Victoria is an island located within the Nahuel Huapi National Park, in Patagonia, Argentina. At the beginning of the 20th century, the Argentine government established a nursery to assess the growth and yield potential of hundreds of forestry and fruit trees. At least 73 conifers, including most of the world’s known invasive conifer species, were planted.

Mexico

The project will generate new information for several species of rays that are heavily exploited in the Gulf of California; this information will contribute to population analysis to estimate the degree of vulnerability to overfishing, extinction risk, as well as the correlation in the historical trend of capture with sea surface temperature throughout the years of study.

Argentina

The Piedmont Forest has numerous tree endemisms, many of which are harvested and threatened. 90% of its original surface has been lost. Forest harvesting is carried out without guidelines that ensure their long-term conservation and productivity, which has impoverished and degraded these forests.

Argentina

Pollinators play an essential role for ecosystem health and maintain biodiversity through the pollination of both native plants and domesticated crops. In Argentina, many of the fruits, vegetables and some cereal crops are dependent upon pollination for full fruit set.

Mauritania

Overall, there is huge lack of information about the biology of P. zolii and the species is known from only five localities. This information gap is partially caused by regional insecurity conditions, which hamper the development of field studies.

Central African Republic

Pangolins (Pholidota, Manidae) are highly specialized, cryptic in the wild, nocturnal, and therefore complicated to monitor. Globally, there are eight extant species of pangolins, four Asian species and four African ones. Their scales, as well as other derivates of their bodies, are believed to be utilized for a wide range of different treatments in traditional African as well Asian medicines.

Serbia

Wetlands are habitats of great importance for the conservation of biodiversity. Yet recently, their quality is compromised. We will give an evaluation of freshwater habitats quality and effectiveness of their management, by studying population parameters, genotoxicity and parasite loads of European pond turtles in two protected and four unprotected areas across Serbia.
