About us

Located in the Department of Biology of the Rio Piedras campus of the University of Puerto Rico we are in a priviliged position for studying tropical landscapes. The island of Puerto Rico itself is a living landscape, and its impressive road system allows easy access to almost any corner of the island. In addition, there is a wealth of non-spatial and spatial data for the island that when combined opens countless opportunities to address a diverse set of questions about the organization of tropical landscapes. On the other hand, our location in the San Juan metropolitan area facilitates access to mainland locations relatively fast and easy.

We strive for excelence in our endevours, and are committed to raise people's interest on environmental issues.
