The influence of the moon on bats' activity.

Giulliana Appel, a masters student on INPA's Graduate Program in Ecology, jointly with researchers from PPBio / CENBAM, evaluated the influence of lunar luminosity on the flying activity of insectivorous bats. The research was carried out in the Adolpho Ducke Reserve (Manaus-AM), where ultrasound recorders were installed to identify and evaluate the activity of the bats by the ultrasound that they emit.

Clearing and maintenance of PPBio research trails.

Between December 2016 and January 2017, the access trails and corridors of 42 plots were cleaned and maintained at the  collection sites of the Experimental Plantation of UFAM and the 01 Module of BR 319 (Purupuru - Km 34). The maintenance of the trails is carried out periodically in order to improve access and facilitate the locomotion of researchers in the research plots.
