We are an enthusiastic group of researchers, teachers, fellows and students who are focused on the reproductive biology of arthropods, with emphasis on evolution of sexual traits among arachnids.
We started this way since 10 years ago in order to offer a place of research and teaching in our country on this exciting subject. Together with studies on biodiversity and phylogeny we want to show an integrative perspective of arachnids.
We have explored a part of the amazing reproductive life of scorpions, spiders, pseudoscorpions, and solpugids, among other groups.
We are happy to had been part of the science communication course taugth by Eileen Hebets in Cordoba. We went through a week of challenging activities with an interdisciplinary group where we learned the most effective strategies to achieve the student’s engagement in STEM areas. We believe that this kind of activities is a fundamental Read more about Communication in Science (Eileen Hebets)[…]
Unity is strength! The enthusiasm to share and discuss different knowledge, questions and interpretations about the evolutionary processes that occur in spiders finally found its time and place in the Taller de Evolución de la Genitalia de Arañas in Córdoba. During this week, the MACN and LABRE arachnologists had the opportunity to enrich ourselves professionally Read more about Evolution Workshop of Spider Genitalia (LABRE-MACN)[…]
