The biodiversity of characterized reproductive models to be preserved in the State of São Paulo: structure and management of reproduction, placenta and placentation


The aim of this project is to bring together scientists and professionals interested in studying the biology of the reproduction of wild animals in the State of São Paulo. Initially it is intended to consider some rodents (paca, agouti, capybara and rock cavy) forest pigs, (collared peccary, peccary, wild boar), the South American crecetidae and the sloth: however in subsequent phases other species could be added to this proposal. This study refers to the processes involved in the reproduction of these species in the sense of preserving them, through rearing in captivity and assisted reproduction. Physiological aspects such as puberty, oestrus, gestation time, etc. in the conditions of the State of São Paulo, as well as external interferences in the process caused by alterations in the ecosystem. Equally, the physiology of the fetal membranes will be studied, as well as the embryonary annexes of accessory maternal elements. (AU)
