Fethi Bengil

Turkey

Our first and second projects provided an important preliminary understanding on ecology of cetaceans in the Aegean Sea on behalf of their conservation, besides providing opportunity to increase awareness of local community. Outputs of these projects and co-actions by stakeholders indicated also some serious scientific and social considerations on their conservation in Turkey.

Congo (Kinshasa)

The forests of the Congo Basin are rich in biodiversity, particularly amphibians, which are not well known in DR Congo, due to a lack of real expertise. The Kisangani region theoretically contains between 50 and 80 amphibian species, a proven diversity.

Colombia,Brazil

The genus Dendroceros is one of the most diverse among the hornworts, but in the Neotropics information on its diversity and ecology is scarce. To provide a classification on the state of conservation of the species, including their threats in the montane forests of Brazil and Colombia, may help us to protect and conserve these highly threatened species and their ecosystems.

Kenya

Mangroves in Kenya are disappearing at an alarming rate. The most common method of regeneration of these forests in Kenya is through replanting. This approach is often not successful especially when reasons for mangrove degeneration were not removed prior to planting of new seedlings. This exacerbates the costs of planting with little success.

Guadalupe Pacheco

Mexico

The problem of forest pests of the bark beetle (BB) has generated concern among the forest communities of Oaxaca, since forest pests impose economic, ecological and social costs on the communities. Given this, we have observed how the areas that present only species of the genus Pinus can be devastated almost completely after BB attacks.

Comoros

The Comoros archipelago is one of the biodiversity hotspots because of its high level of endemism . However, this archipelago represents one of the poorest nations in the world (about 72% of the population directly depend on forest resources for subsistence).

Ibrahem Ben Amer

Tunisia

The project will be using Mark-recapture protocol (a.k.a photo-identification, Wursig and Jefferson, 1990; Rosel, 2011) to collect the necessary data to estimate the abundance of the bottlenose dolphin population in northern Tunisia. The method relies on conducting systematic (or random) field trips by boat.
