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
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.
This is the first study that confirms the invasiveness of the Pallas’s squirrel also in terms of capability to compete with native species. UAGRA shows how the Palla’s squirrel in Italy competes with the Eurasian red squirrel for space and food resources. Read more here.
Here what Damiano (Preatoni) thinks of the recent book on camera trapping by Francesco Rovero and Fridolin Zimmermann
The book everyone working with camera traps should have. A detailed and complete “hands-on” approach on camera trapping, with applied examples on almost every aspect of using camera traps, from planning (camera choice, deployment, etc.) to data colleciton and analysis. Strong of several decades of photographic trapping experience, the Authors offer to the reader their first-hand experience.
