Instituto de Biología,

Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México

 

The Instituto de Biología of the Universidad Nacional Autonóma de México (IBUNAM), housing the largest scorpion collection in Mexico, provides laboratory space and collection facilities for the REVSYS project. The geographical location of the Instituto and its political affiliations make possible fieldwork in Mexico that is fundamental to the REVSYS Vaejovidae project goals.

The mission of IBUNAM is to conduct scientific research into the origin, interactions, distribution, composition, use and conservation of biological diversity.  In addition to safeguarding the National Biological Collections, the Instituto develops human resources in the biological sciences and promotes the understanding and conservation of Mexican biodiversity to the public.

The IBUNAM is one of the larger Mexican institutions conducting scientific research in biology.  The faculty of IBUNAM comprises two departments, Botany and Zoology, in addition to the Botanical Garden, the Station of Tropical Biology ‘Chamela’ and the Station of Tropical Biology ‘Los Tuxtlas’, located in the states of Jalisco and Veracruz, respectively.

As part of its educational responsibilities, the IBUNAM offers a Graduate Program (Masters and PhD) in the Biological Sciences, the objective of which is to train qualified academics. Details of some of the major facilities and equipment available at IBUNAM for this project are accessible through links on the menu to the left of this page.
