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!
