Happy new Year with the two most recent papers published by UAGRA!

Happy new Year with the two most recent papers published by UAGRA! published on

2019 opens with two interesting papers where UAGRA has been involved.
The first one is on Invasive Alien Species and in particular invasive squirrels, indeed UAGRA with a very wide collaboration (Dipartimento di Bioscienze e territorio del Molise, Insititute de Biologia Evolutiva (Barcelona), Dipartimento di Biologia, Università degli Studi di Firenze, Wildlife Research Unit, Dipartimento di Agraria, Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, Museo di Storia naturale della Calabria e orto Botanico, Università della Calabria, Dipartimento di Scienze della Vita e Biologia dei Sistemi, università di Torino, Dipartimento di Scienze della Vita, Università di Siena) focus on modelling the future spread of invasive squirrels, pointing out as climate change by itself does not properly describe future IAS range expansion and how much important is to include also land-use change in modelling. You can find out everything here!

The second one brings everybody in a wonderful National Park in Myanmar where UAGRA works since a lot of time in collaboration with Istituto Oikos e Dipartimento di Scienze della terra, Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca. This time UAGRA uses Species Distribution Modelling (SDM) to understand illegal human presence in the Lampi Marine National Park with aim to address in the best way patrol activities. If animals range can be modelled, why not human range? Find out more info here!

Welcome in to the ARENA

Welcome in to the ARENA published on

Lions and Tigers in the ARENA! Who is going to survive? Bold or shy?
What is it more interesting to read when you are on the beach this summer, then such interesting topic?

Do you want to know more on “Open Field Test (OFT) and Mirror Image Stimulation (MIS) for behaviour testing”?
And do you know that “Relationships between personality and fitness components can vary with changes in population density and/or habitat quality”?

Have a look of the two new UAGRA papers!

Giacomo Cremonesi – Assessing the impact of human activities on wildlife in Myanmar tropical forests using emerging technologies

I’m Giacomo,I have a master degree in Ecobiology achieved at La Sapienza University of Rome. I have already had the pleasure of collaborating in both of my theses with the group UAGRA and this year I will start my PhD. The principals aims of my work will be:
– Increase knowledge on distribution and ecology of medium-large endangered mammals in tropical forests
– Evaluation of human activities and their role on degradation of tropical ecosystems
– Identification of criticalities for conservation and planning of improving management strategies currently in progress

Have you got a kingdom? no? well you are a Protist! published on

Despite the overlapping ranges of native and introduced tree squirrels in Northern Italy, Sciurus vulgaris was exclusively infected with Cryptosporidium ferret genotype while C. ubiquitum and skunk genotype may have been introduced to Europe with invasive squirrels.

If you are interested in this strange topic for UAGRA team read the recent publication in collaboration with the Institute of Parasitology, Biology Centre of the Czech Academy of Sciences, České Budějovice, Czech Republic, the Faculty of Agriculture, University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, Czech Republic, the Department of Pathology and Parasitology, University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical sciences, Brno, Czech Republic, the Department of Veterinary Sciences and Public Health, Università degli Studi di Milano, Milan, Italy and the Veterinary and Microbiological Sciences Department, North Dakota State University, Fargo, USA.
