HOW TO PARTICIPATE

How can I participate?

We anticipate three main types of participation, although we are open to discuss all means of collaboration. Just let us know what you are willing to provide to the initiative and what you want to get from the EHI.

1. Sampling

NO SPECIFIC PROJECT

If you occasionally or regularly capture animals for conservation or research purposes, we would love to get some samples to be later used in other projects.

2. Project

I HAVE A PROJECT

If you are a researcher interested in performing geographically expansive research on a vertebrate species, we would love to collaborate with you!

3. Coordination

I WANT TO COORDINATE!

If you are a researcher who loves ecology, evolution and hologenomics and you are willing to dedicate your time to EHI, please let us know!
