Biota: Biodiversity in areas altered by man

Published in 10 September 2014 - Pesquisa FAPESP. The ninth and last meeting of the Biota-FAPESP Education Conference Cycle addressed environments which have been altered by human action, such as cities and rural zones. Although degraded, those areas still harbour a large diversity of animal and plant species. In Brazil, 85% of the population live in urban areas, where trees are becoming scarcer and the survival of animals is thus threatened.Farm areas can also hide a great variety of wild animals – mammals, fish, amphibians and birds. To know more about this biological universe hidden among buildings and crops, and the challenges regarding its conservation, watch these excerpts of the talks presented by biologists Elizabeth Höfling, from the Biosciences Institute at São Paulo University (USP), and Roseli Buzanelli Torres, from Campinas Agronomical Institute (IAC), and agronomist Luciano Martins Verdade, from USP’s Center for Nuclear Energy in Agriculture.
