Argentina

Human communities depend on watersheds for the physical place to live or work, but also other contributions from nature, such as food, drinking water, places for recreation and tourism (Zagarola et al, 2014). Therefore, it is important to implement sustainable use projects that integrate local communities to their watershed to achieve rational use and better management of resources.

During the last three decades, soybeans crops extension has expanded without precedents in Argentina and particularly in this province, where the area planted since 1988 showed a 7-fold increasing, ranking among the five main producing provinces. DCF was reduced to isolated fragments of different shapes and sizes, surrounded by an agricultural matrix.

Argentina,Chile

Recent global warming and severe droughts have caused decline and forest mortality worldwide. In addition, climatic models predict that these extreme events will be more severe and frequent in the next decades. Nonetheless, tree physiological mechanisms under drought conditions and the key drivers inducing tree decline are still poorly understood.

The aim of this project is to contribute to a better understanding of ecosystem service (ES) supply and potential for preserving native medium-large mammals of silvopastoral systems in the Dry Chaco. We will focus in Argentinean provinces of Catamarca, San Luis, Salta and Santiago del Estero to evaluate ES related with forest structure and functioning (e.g.

Panama

Ateles geoffroyi panamensis is classified as Critically Endangered species from the 25 most threatened primates in the world. In Panama its habitat is facing deforestation due to anthropogenic development and mine activity. This project will detect and track population group structure, population density and circadian activity using camera traps at forest medium high level (Orion Camera System).

Brazil

Alagoas State has confirmed occurrence of the endangered blonde capuchin monkey (Sapajus flavius). The conservation status from the species (which was newly discovered and has little relevant information to assist in its own conservation) is a consequence from the habitat lost, hunt and illegal trade. Meanwhile wildlife care centers are becoming overbooked because of primates’ traffic.

Hippopotamus population in West Africa have been identified to be of the highest level of risk due to severely fragmented population, distribution and high frequency of Hippo-human conflicts (Lewison & Pluháček, 2017). Quite recently, the species has been reported extinct in some African Countries including Liberia (Lewison & Pluháček, 2017).

Mauritius

The Mauritian flying fox Pteropus niger is the last animal that disperses large seeded plants and plays a crucial role in forest regeneration and maintenance. Mauritius has lost 98% of its original forest cover and the remaining native plants survive in isolated forest patches usually located on mountain slopes.
