SCIENTIFIC

For over 20 years, many research projects have been developed at TRC, including long term studies, undergraduate and graduate theses from national as well as international institutions.

Annually we receive dozens of undergraduate students from Biology, Social and Art studies, many of them international and national students coming to do their graduate or doctorate thesis.

We have permanent researchers studying mammals, birds, butterflies and plants, who have recorded dozens of newly registered species and species new to science. For more information on these permanent research projects, please see the "current research" section.
