PhD Project

I aim to develop a collaborative strategic association of specialists in different biological groups for data collection of the biodiversity of Uruguay - the Uruguayan Consortium of Biodiversity Data. To quantify in an innovative way the efficiency of science investment policies represents an extraordinary and an exceptional opportunity, not only at the national level but for international impact, and for the future of Uruguay’s methods of conservation and evaluation.
