Wildlife Management & Conservation Laboratory (WMAC)


WMAC is focused on monitoring, conservation and management of wildlife populations, involving different perspectives that range from spatial, trophic, population, disease ecology, genetic, phylogeographic and evolutionary to human dimension, science outreach and public involvement approaches. WMAC research encompasses different state-of-the-art methodological approaches that include molecular ecology, Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing, advanced statistical techniques, satellite radio-tracking and field work monitoring, among others. WMAC research is implemented in a wide range of environments (Mediterranean forest, Neotropical Rainforest, African Savannas, Cerrado, Pantanal, etc.), covering most of world’s regions (South and North America, Europe, Africa).
