Article published on the University of San Luis website shows PPBio's progress in Argentina

A report by PPBio Argentina researcher and member Dr. Ana Uchoa, published on September 24 on the University of São Luis website, shows the progress of the Biodiversity Research Program (PPBio) in this country.
In the article, Dr. Ana Uchoa talks about the research work she develops with small mammals in different parts of the country. This year, this research branch received a grant from the English Rufford Foundation, one of the first projects of the National University of San Luis (UNSL) to be selected.



Rufford's grant is awarded to conservation projects in different parts of the world, with preponderance in research carried out in countries of the southern hemisphere. The team led by Ochoa received about 250,000 pesos that will be used to further study in the provinces of La Rioja, Santiago del Estero and San Luis. The research focuses on conducting a comparative analysis of small mammal groups from different locations in central and northern Argentina, focusing on the study in the Arid Chaco region. The province of Santiago del Estero is the northernmost location. Samples are also being taken at Talampaya National Park in La Rioja, and in San Luis were included two sites: the Sierra de las Quijadas National Park and the San Francisco Mountains.
