When useful life of a mine is used up desert sites remain exposed to erosion, beginning a primary ecological succession. However, although plant community emerging provides several habitats for herpetofauna, still is unknown their response to anthropogenic disturbed sites such as the mining. To our knowledge this study is the pioneer in determining...

Project
In 2015, we formed a new Conservation Network called 'Red para la conservación de los anfibios y reptiles de Yucatán' (RCARY). We have designed a digital platform, which links visitors with scientific specialists from research institutions and environmental educators, for the development of local conservation activities. With regional and international partners, we have been actively involved in the research of local species, the creation of species identification guides and developing and offering workshops in schools, universities, and regional communities, with the result of engaging the citizens of Yucatán Peninsula in the conservation of their native amphibians and reptiles fauna.
