Peru

Tropical Dry Forests (TDF) are among the most threatened and under-studied tropical forests in the world. Unlike tropical rainforests – which harbour a large number of species – TDF have extraordinary levels of endemism and species with restricted distributions and are under considerable threat from rapid conversion of forest lands for development.

The Great Snipe is currently classified as “Near Threatened” at global level (IUCN 2017; Birdlife International, 2015). Habitat loss and decreasing population size demand special attention to preservation of this species. The first important data concerning to numbers and biology of this species in Belarus were collected during implementation of special project in 2000-2001.

Bolivia

Bolivia is one of the Latin American countries with the greatest biocultural biodiversity (8 ecoregions, 36 indigenous peoples), and is considered a megadiverse country and one of the most diverse areas of the country are the Bolivian Yungas, there are reasons to think that they are important reservoirs of wealth mycological, endemism and ethnobiological richness, since this ecoregion is a Hot Spo

Costa Rica

Studies on the trophic ecology of marine predators help to define the ecological role that they have within an ecosystem; they help us understand the trophic interactions that occur between individuals of these populations, their competitors and their prey. The bull shark (Carcharhinus leucas) is considered a top predator that contributes to the balance of coastal habitats.
