Formación de Capital Humano


Within the Population Dynamic group, two postdocs, six PhD (four from the Program in Biological Sciences, Ecology at PUC; two from Argentina and Uruguay, thee MSc (from Uruguay) and five undergraduate students (PUC) have been (are being) trained in this period.


Difusión y Transferencia


In terms of outreach activities we are collaborating with the Ministerio de Salud de Chile (MINSAL) since December 2011 in a collaborative endeavor aimed to improve the surveillance and analytic methodologies of human diseases and to develop sound predictive models to be used in prevention of these diseases. This group has developed and published for governmental wildlife and fisheries managers, policy makers as well as for environmental biologists, agronomists and health agencies, simple and theoretical based models able to be fit to empirical and field data. These models seem to have a major practical utility in diverse applied fields such as, applied entomology, pest control, fisheries management, conservation of endangered species, crop yield production and epidemiology. These kind of models are cheap to build, easy to operate and usually more accurate for predictive purposes. In addition, they can provide valuable diagnostic clues to the factors determining population changes and can be used to test different management alternatives.
