The center already has a research module installed, where fish surveys, shrimps, insects (Odonata), spiders, palm trees, woody plants and aquatic microorganisms (bacterioplankton, phytoplankton and zooplankton) are being conducted, and to evaluate plants with the potential to bioprospecting and verify the activity of the active principles and carry methodological procedures for obtaining extracts of botanical species identified.
To the physical environment is being evaluated through topographic and hydrographic mapping, installation of piezometers and rain gauge, physical characterization and soil chemistry - Particle size, humidity, soil profile, macronutrients (C, H, O, N, P, K, Mg, S) and micronutrients (Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn, Cl, B, Mo) and water - pH, Conductivity, Temperature, Turbidity, Macro and Micronutrients and heavy metals.
