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.

Benin

Benin is a moderately forested country with vegetation dominated by savannahs mosaics where degradation of forests is still a major concern. The loss of forests was estimated to 75,000 ha/year between 1990 and 2011 (FAO, 2011). Land clearing for agriculture, charcoal production and overgrazing are often referred to as the main drivers of forest degradation in Benin.

Indonesia

At the epicentre of marine biodiversity, Raja Ampat represents a priority and an opportunity to unveil the potential diversity of antipatharians (black corals) and the role they play on shallow and mesophotic reef ecosystems. The aim of the project is to mentor and build capacity for local researchers and conservationists on: i) black corals biology and ecology,
