Demography and Population Projection Techniques

We are developing long-term population monitoring programs using mark-recapture data to understand the population dynamics of several neotropical species. We are interested in determining the impact of human perturbations habitat conditions on the demographic parameters of long lived, endangered and endemic species. Currently, we are focusing on freshwater turtles in the Magdalena river, one andean anole and three endemic frogs. We recently started a new project on crocodiles.
