Congo (Kinshasa)

Kahuzi-Biega National Park is located at about 35 km distance from Bukavu town, near Lake Kivu, in South Kivu Province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It was established in 1970, and it is a World Heritage site since 1980. Ten percent of the 6000 km2 area is Montane forest, with great biodiversity.

Clara Trofino Falasco

Argentina

Cattle grazing is one of the main causes of habitat degradation in the temperate grasslands of the Southern Pampas. In these grazed-systems, nest predation is usually the top cause of bird breeding failure. The loss of grassland structure caused by grazing makes nests more accessible to predators.

Claudia Luna

Chile

In this project, a model based on the characteristics of the species will be used (response traits to environmental conditions, coincidence traits that allow plant-frugivorous interaction and functional effect traits of frugivores), to understand the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning (BEF) and plant-frugivore interactions through different sequential processes that lead t

Ghana

The Vulnerable African dwarf crocodiles have recently been split into three distinct species (Eaton et al., 2009; Shirley et al., 2014) and an ongoing IUCN threat assessment indicates the West African form (Osteolaemus sp. aff. tetraspis) may warrant Endangered status (M. Shirley, pers. comm.).

Chile

Native cockroaches are fundamental for Earth ecosystems recycling. In Chile, genus Moluchia (Blattodea: Ectobiidae) is a representative lineage, threatened by urbanization. Previously, we categorized Moluchia brevipennis as vulnerable (IUCN criteria).

The Calakmul Biosphere Reserve (CBR) encompasses the largest region of intact tropical forests outside the Amazon. Fifty-two rural communities totalling 29,000 inhabitants live in the buffer zone of the CBR, where they depend on natural resources provided by these forests. Agriculture is the primary source of income, traditionally from family-scale swidden cropping for maize, beans and yucca.

Argentina

Billions of dollars are spent each year globally to finance conservation programs, including payments for ecosystem services (PES). PES programs pay landowners and indigenous communities to protect native ecosystems on their land.

Tanzania

In recent years, the Rift Valley lakes of north-central Tanzania have seen a drastic decline in key fisheries due to the combined effects of illegal fishing, habitat degradation, overfishing, and climate change. Hence, the extent of occurrence of the endemic tilapias which formed a significant proportion of the catch has shrunk and most endemic species are now classed as endangered.
