Event

National Wildlife Conservation Conference
"A Picture is Worth MUCH MORE Than a Thousand Words: How camera traps are helping to conserve tropical forests."
Dr. Jorge A. Ahumada; Technical Director, TEAM Network
Betty & Gordon Moore Center for Ecosystem Science and Economics
Conservation International

Dr. Ahumada is broadly interested in applying mathematical models to solve applied conservation problems. He has worked on a wide variety of conservation issues, including the impacts of climate change on disease and biodiversity, incorporating the effects of temperature and rainfall on models of disease-transmitting vectors, and most recently, using disguised cameras to monitor vertebrates.

With TEAM, Dr. Ahumada is working to measure and compare plants, terrestrial mammals, ground- dwelling birds, and climate using a standard methodology in a range of tropical forests, from relatively pristine places to those most affected by people. TEAM currently operates in sixteen tropical forest sites across Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Dr. Ahumada holds a degree in Biology from Universidad de Los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia and a Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Princeton University. Prior to joining Conservation International, he held a variety of academic and research roles in the U.S. and Colombia.
