Brief description of research lines
My research focuses on the ecology and conservation of biodiversity in Latin America. We are addressing the effects of human land use and resource use upon the structure and dynamics of biodiversity in order to achieve both biodiversity conservation and the production of goods and services for human populations.
Currently we are focusing on biodiversity conservation in forestry plantations and solving the carnivore-livestock conflict. Our research aims to provide scientific information to support policy and decision-making for the use and conservation of biodiversity. Details at www.conservacion.cl and www.kauyeken.cl
