Camilo Loaiza Gómez

Colombia

Environmental degradation by development works in the neotropic, especially in Colombia has been compensated creating environmental compensation areas.

Colombia

Given the contemporary processes of transformation, loss and fragmentation of natural habitats, the protected areas are becoming more and more isolated. However, many species require large areas that far exceed the size of these, which causes loss of individuals, genetic diversity, and affects the health of ecosystems, the ecological and evolutionary processes of species and their populations.

Carlos Mauricio Delgado Martínez

Mexico

The combined effects of climate change and human population growth are greatly affecting the availability of key resources such as water. Capacity to deal with the consequences of this phenomenon will define, in a large extent, the future of biodiversity and mankind.

Charles Kilawe

Tanzania

The small, diurnal dwarf gecko, Lygodactylus williamsi is endemic to two small forests in the eastern central Tanzania. The species is territorial and exclusively dwells on screw pines (Pandanus rabaiensis).

Chefor Fotang

Cameroon

The Nigeria-Cameroon (Pan troglodyes ellioti) is the rarest and most threatened sub-species of Chimpanzee. The ecology and behaviour of remaining populations in the North West region of Cameroon is unknown. Line transect, Wildlife Camera trapping, and collection of faeces samples will be employed as non-invasive research methods in this project.

Christine Rose Coppinger

Zambia

Where the potential of pollinator-supported NTFPs (such as honey) to support rural livelihoods have been widely acknowledged, an in depth assessment of the impacts of their exploitation has not been done.

Christopher Chesire

Kenya

My project will evaluate moist upland Afromontane forests in Kenya’s rift valley to elaborate on whether the forests can cope up with the existing high pressure of utilization and can successfully be able to maintain healthy proportions of its major species.

Cyrus Rumisha

Tanzania

Artisanal fisheries provide livelihood to coastal communities in Tanzania and contribute to the national income. Despite its importance, the growing coastal population is threatening the sustainability of the fishery due to increased fishing pressure and the use of destructive fishing methods.

South Africa

The many ecosystem services provided by bats are likely to be severely and detrimentally impacted by, human-induced climatic changes that are likely to impair the operational range of echolocation systems of entire bat species communities. Climatic variables affect the propagation of bat echolocation signals through the atmosphere.

Davoud Fadakar

Iran

Lack of evolutionary knowledge, a dramatic decline, and taxonomic uncertainties of Iranian Chinkara hamper conservation efforts. Therefore, in this project, samples of populations throughout the country will be collected non-invasively and analyzed with state-of-the-art molecular methods to provide detailed insight into population history and phylogenetic relationships of Chinkara.
