Research withImpactLeadershipIntegrity

Now that we face some of the most complex challenges in the history of humanity, the study of interrelationships between life and matter, from multiple perspectives and at all scales, is a crucial task. At the Institute of Ecology, studies of sustainability, evolution, genetics and ecosystems are combined in multi- and transdisciplinary projects that address the most relevant problems of today.

2024 CALENDAR

Science Dissemination through Art

The goal of our 2024 calendar is to disseminate part of our scientific activity in an artistic way. Nine digital illustration artists participated in its creation.

To the left, the illustration for May 2024: Fire in the Yucatan jungle * Illustrator: Alberto Guerra Escamilla

"More than 85% of the burned area in Mexico and the world is the result of human activities. In the past 20 years, the average surface area affected by fires in Mexico exceeded that affected by deforestation, and carbon emissions exceeded those associated with land use/cover change by 11 times. The Terrestrial Biogeochemistry and Climate Laboratory studies the dynamics of terrestrial ecosystems in the face of disturbances such as hurricanes and fires."

People Make the Institute

We believe each person in our institute's community plays an important role in the success of our research and academic activities, and we truly value their contributions. That is why we seek to foster a cordial environment and encourage a constant collaboration between the people who constitute this community: permanent, administrative staff, researchers and students.

The institute's policy is zero tolerance for any manifestation of unethical, violent or discriminatory conduct, and we have the appropriate channels for its attention, timely conduct and fair resolution in the pertinent university bodies.

The Institute's History

Since the Institute of Ecology is a relatively young academic entity—officially founded in 1996—, many of its founding members are still active and share our spaces for collaboration and academic development with the rest of the institute's academic community on a daily basis. Thanks to this, we remain closely connected to our fundation history and become more aware of the transformations that the institute has since witnessed.
