1 Graduate Program in ECMVS was established at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, BrazilFinal Report –
2 Ecologia, Conservação e Manejo da Vida Silvestre The Graduate Program in ECMVS was established at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Brazil, in mid The first cohort of students was enrolled in February of 1989, therefore completing 15 years in The program is a joint effort of the Departments of Botany, General Biology (through its Ecology and Genetics Divisions) and Zoology, associated with the Institute of Biological Sciences. Even considering the increasing number of post graduation programs in Ecology in Brazil, ECMVS Program continues to be unique in the country in its goals and applied orientation.
3 Major research areas of the ECMVS Program in 2002-2004 period Ecologia, Conservação e Manejo da Vida SilvestreMajor research areas of the ECMVS Program in period1 – Ecology and Behaviour of Wildlife 2 – Biodiversity Conservation 3 – Environmental education and management 4 – Ecological processes and pathways 5 – Applied ecology in the management of natural resources 6 – Development, standardization and certification of new methodologies of data acquisition and quantitative treatment of environmental data.

17 Ecologia, Conservação e Manejo da Vida Silvestre Where are the former students of ECMVS Program ?A significant number of our students find jobs in small consultancy firms, NGO organizations and in Brazilian governmental offices. The present coordination is engaged in a rapid change of the main focus of the program. We are working with the faculty in order to start/apply for projects devoted to applied areas of Ecology such as water resource management, recovery of degraded areas, ecology of urban areas. To reach this goal, it is very important to enhance our field courses, giving the students more chances of discovering research topics more related to the national reality and real needs of the internal market.
