Understanding how evolutionary and ecological processes operate is not a easy task. Thus, a diverse toolkit, including molecular approaches, is key to answer questions in ecology and evolution that may support biodiversity conservation.


The main objective of the CAPES-JSPS Molecular Ecology Workshop is to allow the sharing of recent findings, previous experiences, new techniques, and perspectives on the use molecular tools to answer questions in conservation, ecology and evolution.


This workshop will be a single-'room' hybrid event, in which the Japanese researchers and students will attend the workshop at Iriomote Station (University of the Ryukyus) and the Brazilian team will join them remotely via Zoom.

Presentations and discussions

The workshop will be a single-"room" hybrid event in which there will both oral presentations of researchers and students and group discussions. We expect the participants to explore how the research teams from Brazil and Japan may work together in future projects by sharing their good (and not so good) collaboration experiences.
