Unam scientists develop ecology tracking software

Bnamericas Published: Saturday, March 20, 2004
The biology department at Mexico's largest university Unam has developed a software program to model ecological scenarios, local press reported. The software models scenarios of how the distribution of species has changed as a result of modernization, and especially deforestation, in the last 40-50 years. By tracking changes, the scientists hope to develop more precise strategies for protecting Mexico's endangered species, Unam researcher Víctor Sánchez said. The scientists' goal is to use the software to identify those zones of biodiversity in greatest need of protection, and then obtain state protection of these zones.
