The Story-map is a tool to improve understanding and communication of the context of the questions raised in the workshops, understanding of social-ecological resilience in the four sites, and as an interactive tool for future workshops.

The interactive report on land use change processes in four tropical and subtropical forest regions is presented as part of the project “Exploring change in heterogeneous territories: Socio-ecological resilience to environmental change – building a common platform for research and action”

Ilustrated Guide for the Identification of Plant Tissues from
Native Plant species of the Dry Chaco of Cordoba, Argentina

Mammalian herbivores can change the dynamics of plant communities, altering species diversity, dimensional structure and succession processes. These effects can, in turn, affect the diversity and activity of other herbivores, predators and parasites in a community (Lindroth 1989). The purpose of this guide is to contribute to the analysis of herbivore diet utilizing the micro-histological technique described by Dacar and Giannoni (2001).
