LMI EDIA

Mixed International Laboratory "Evolution and domestication of the Amazonian Ichtyofauna" (LMI-EDIA)

Team 7: Biodiversity & Macroecology
Collaborator(s): 
IIAP -Pérou, UAGRM - Bolivie
2016 to 2020
Program type: 
International

The major objectives of the Mixed International Laboratory "Evolution and domestication of the Amazonian Ichtyofauna" (LMI-EDIA) are:

  • To understand the evolutionary (speciation, dispersal, extinction, and adaptation) and ecological (life history traits, environmental variations) processes involved in the exceptional diversity of Amazonian fish species.
  • To provide the biological basis for improving fisheries management and conservation.
  • To contribute to sustainable aquaculture development of native fish species.
  • To develop a predictive approach about the impacts of natural and anthropogenic environmental changes on the diversity of Amazonian fish species.

During this second phase (2016-2020)the LMI EDIA will continue to develop an approach of integrative biology through the synergy of three research axis:

AXIS 1: Past, present and future dynamic of biodiversity.

AXIS 2: Variability of life history strategies between species and their populations.

AXIS 3: Biological basis and socio-economical approach for a sustainable aquaculture.
