The BR-163 Sustainable Forest District (DFS) aims to create a "Sustainable Territory" through coordinated actions aimed at an orderly and sustainable use of timber and the development of economically viable alternatives to forest clearing. With regard to PIME, this is a unique opportunity both to study the impacts of comprehensive public policies on land use change and its impacts on natural resources, as well as to provide a "real-time" Of the District.
PPBio is in charge of this project of studies on the distribution of biodiversity in the DFS area and of assessing the impacts of different uses of land, especially logging, on biodiversity. At the moment, studies are being conducted on terrestrial herbs (responsible: Fernando Figueiredo and Flávia Costa, INPA), terrestrial invertebrates (Responsible: Marlúcia Martins, Alexandre Bonaldo, Catarina Praxedes, MPEG) and birds (Responsible: Alexandre Aleixo and Elinete Rodrigues, MPEG ).
