IADIZA conducts scientific research aimed at understanding and explaining the structure and functioning of drylands

Population and Community Ecology

DESCRIPTION OF THE ACTIVITIES OF THE GROUP

The Research Group on Population and Community Ecology is composed of researchers interested in studying ecology at different organization levels, from individual behavior to community organization and functioning. Our research is prompted by questions solidly grounded in the ecological theory. This motivation leads us to combine a diversity of approaches, including observational field studies, manipulative experiments, mathematical and simulation models, conceptual work with pen and paper, and epistemological reflection. Research is conducted mostly on ecological systems of the Mendoza region, from the Monte desert to the high mountain areas.

The group is composed of two subgroups:

  • Group of Desert Community Ecology (See Website)
  • Laboratory of Animal Behavior Ecology
