Graduate Program in ECMVS was established at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Brazil Final Report – 2002-2004
The Graduate Program in ECMVS was established at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Brazil, in mid-1988. The first cohort of students was enrolled in February of 1989, therefore completing 15 years in 2004. 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. Ecologia, Conservação e Manejo da Vida Silvestre
Major research areas of the ECMVS Program in 2002-2004 period 1 – 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.

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.

Professor ECMVS graduate students are frequently participating in activities developed by several Brazilian environmental programs like LTER, CI-TEAM iniciative and MMA/PROBIO
A mandatory field course, lasting three weeks is offered annually…
During this period the students learn many techniques such as animal capture, observation and classification.... Artibeus lituratus Platyrrhinus sp.
Marsúpio de um Didelphis albiventris Oligoryzomys sp. Akodon cursor. Gracilinanus agilis.
...observations on the animal behavior...
…techniques for water analyses... plant morphology... and adaptations to the environment... Coleta de amostras de sedimento
The last field course took place at the Rio Preto State Park...
...and in this year the field course occurs at the Serra do Rola Moça State Park in association with Instituto Estadual de Florestas de Minas Gerais and Fundação Biodiversitas. For the first time a group of students are envolved in the management plan of one Brazilian Park.

Results from dissertations and thesis are currently used to elaborate the endangered species list for Brazilian fauna and flora. They are also used in documents that indicate priority areas for biodiversity conservation in Brazil
