Management and Conservation of Natural Areas
Environmental figures for natural areas may assume an important role in the coming years as experimental models for sustainable development. Natural areas tend to gravitate towards possibilities in diversification, by offering leisure and economic development activities, besides the more classic conservationist functions.
From a practical approach, the Conservation and Management of Natural Spaces Program is focused on the study of the conservation of natural areas and the resources that they include, as well as their management with a vision of proper spatial planning and sustainable development.
With regard to conservation, the aspects of diversity are addressed at the levels of genetics, species and communities, emphasizing the methods most used today to ensure their perpetuation. On the topic of management,the intervention of different types of spaces, both terrestrial and marine, as well as the interaction between urban and natural environments are addressed in a comprehensive way.
