Rondônia Regional Center

The Rondônia Regional Nucleus was created in 2006. In 2007-2008, the support infrastructure was reformed and expanded. In 2008, a grid was installed, with PPBio-MCT resources, at the Cuniã Ecological Station (RO). Between 2007-2008, the ESEC support infrastructure was reformed and expanded and IBAMA purchased a van for work at ESEC. The core has five partner institutions since its inception in 2006: Universidade Federal de Rondônia (UNIR), EMBRAPA/RO, Faculdade São Lucas de Porto Velho (FSL) , IBAMA/RO and Núcleo Regional de Pesquisas do INPA/RO - NPROIn 2008, the Management Council added four other institutions: the State Secretariat for Environmental Development of Rondônia (SEDAM), the Municipal Environment Secretariat (SEMA), the Amazon Protection System (SIPAM) and the Brazilian Geological Survey (CPRM).
Between 9 and 15 August 2008, PPBio and UNIR conducted a course on biological inventories for 16 UNIR Biology students at the Cuniã Ecological Station, taught by William Magnusson, Flávia Costa and Fabrício Baccaro (from INPA), by teachers Of UNIR (Carolina Doria, Angelo Manzatto, Malu Messias and Alexandre de Almeida e Silva) and four monitors.
