Ecotourism generates important revenue in many developing economies, but poorly regulated ecotourism can threaten the long-term viability of key biological resources. We determined the effects of tourism, boat traffic, and natural disturbances on parrot geophagy (soil consumption) across seven riverine claylicks in the lowlands of Madre de Dios, Pe...

Abstract The impact of hunting on a primate community: We present the results of a long term (7-year) transect monitoring study conducted at a lowland Amazon rainforest site on the Las Piedras River, southeastern Peru. Prior to the study the area had been the site of timber extraction activities with associated hunting. Large bodied mammals, inclu...

Abstract - Macaw behaviour: Red-and-green macaws (Ara chloropterus) are one of the most commonmembers of the parrot family observed at large, riverside claylicks insouth-easternPeru.Although considered common and widespread in aviculture, little is known about their socialinteractions in the wild. Claylicks provide anideal setting at which to study...

Mammal survey: This study aims to monitor the long term changes that occur in mammal populations after the cessation of hunting activity. 2006 was the fourth consecutive year of data collection along line transects. Populations recorded this year were compared to levels in 2003. The spider monkey (Ateles belzebuth chamek) was the only species to ha...

Macaw & parrot survey: Work was conducted at the Las Piedras Biodiversity Station on the Las Piedras river, south eastern Peru into macaw and parrot activity at clay licks and their distribution patterns in the surrounding forest in terms of forest type. This study supports the work of previous studies which show that parrots and parakeets feed mos...

This study was part of an expedition to the Las Piedras river of the Peru Amazon run by Biosphere Expeditions from 20 May to 16 June 2002. It investigated avian and mammalian geophagy, t he effects of boat traffic on avian colpa behaviour, and compiled species lists in an effort to study biodiversity, elucidate behavioural patterns and reasons for...

Biodiversity research and conservation in the Peru Amazon using citizen science. OUTCOME: Biosphere Expeditions worked in Amazonia from 2001 until 2016. During this time, dams were not built based in part on Biosphere Expeditions’ biodiversity studies and impact assessments, local conservationists were trained and found jobs, and a research station was built (which still operates today). Guidelines for boat behaviour at clay licks in the Tambopata Reserve were also incorporated into local management plans.
