Gina Quintero

Biologist of Colombian nationality. For my thesis I focused on studying the effects of fragmentation and land use change on the connectivity of red howler monkey populations. I'm currently student of the Master of Biological Sciences at UNAM and I'm investigating the influence of the landscape on the occupancy for medium and large mammals in a medium forest in the southeast of Mexico. In the laboratory, I have collaborated with projects such as the census of the jaguar and other mammals, the counting of prairie dogs, the study of activity patterns, make species checklist and the review and edition of scientific articles. My personal interests are focused on the ecology and conservation of mammals and other terrestrial vertebrates, sustainable development and the education and dissemination of science.
