Wildlife Toxicology

The Group of ecotoxicology of IREC is created in mid-2003 and since then works in the evaluation of exposure to different types of toxic to wildlife, as well as the effects that can have on the individual and on the conservation of populations. Also studied the implications in safety food that this type of pollution is for the meat of hunting.

The Group of ecotoxicology of IREC is created in mid-2003 and since then works in the evaluation of exposure to different types of toxic to wildlife, as well as the effects that can have on the individual and on the conservation of populations. In addition, we studied the implications for food security posed by this type of pollution for game meat.

Contaminants and scenarios studied are diverse and include pesticides and fertilizers used in agriculture, pollution by heavy metals caused by old mining activities in areas that are currently engaged in the production of hunting, the pollution associated with the use of ammunition of lead or the impact of toxins and agents microbiological quality of game meat.

Currently this group is part of the thematic network of ecotoxicology of CSIC (www.ecotox.csic.es), of the Wildlife Toxicology Interest Group of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry)www.setac.org/group/IGWildlifeTox) and the European Raptor Biomonitoring Facility)www.setac.org/group/IGWildlifeTox).

Heavy metals pollution caused by mining activity.

Heavy metals mining activity leaves a legacy of contamination by elevated levels of heavy metals in soils and plants being transferred also to the animals that inhabit these areas, including the species of their meat and game. In this issue we work studying sublethal effects of pollution on animals exposed in the field.

Ecotoxicology of the pellet of lead: poisoning in birds and implications on food toxicology.

The accumulation of pellets of lead in them sediments of the wetlands around them posts of hunting produces high prevalences of plumbismo in birds aquatic in Spain. Currently, after the banning of the pellet of lead for hunting in wetlands, we are beginning to see a lower rate ingestion of lead pellets that is reflected in turn in a less contamination of game meat. This line works on the effects of lead in birds, both in field as experimentally, and the implications that this pollution to population level and food security of game meat.

Study of the effect of the use of pesticides and other agro-chemicals in the hunting species of agricultural.

The use of pesticides in agriculture negatively affects the sustainability of the hunt. The effects that the use of agrochemicals can be both indirect, due to the reduction of biodiversity and the usable by game species biomass, as by the direct toxic effect that some pesticides may have on animals. This line works studying the risk of exposure and the effects of pesticides and other agrochemicals in the wild through field studies and experimental animals.

Diagnosis of accidental and intentional poisoning in wildlife and reduction of the use of the poison through the use of chemical conditioned aversion.

One of the most important causes of mortality in wildlife are intentional poisonings through the illegal use of poison to kill predators, causing losses in livestock, hunting and agricultural productions. This online working on techniques for the diagnosis of intoxications by chemical analysis and biomarkers. The monitoring carried out allows you to get a few epidemiological data of utility for a better control of the illegal use of poison. In recent years we have worked on the use of the conditioned aversion to certain prey through the use of chemical substances in order to reduce the conflict of predation, and thus the motivation for the use of poison.

Monitoring of contaminants organic persistent wildlife.

Organochlorine compounds such as p, p'-DDE (a metabolite of DDT) are accumulated in the tissues of the animals that occupy high levels of the trophic chain, as they are all predators, coming to cause adverse effects on reproduction, the function immune or other endocrine-mediated mechanisms. In this line we studied the factors that define the risk of exposure to contaminants persistent and the effects they can have on the animals in the field.

Chemical pollution in the Tablas de Daimiel by waste water discharges.

Several La Mancha wetlands receive wastewater treated more or less directly from the nearby towns. The Tablas de Daimiel suffers the effect of discharges through the two rivers that the supply, the Gigüela and the Guadiana, since populations that are upstream without effective systems of the effluent treatment. The waste water discharges, as well as adversely affect physico-chemical parameters of the water, carry chemical contaminants of different types. This line ranges from effects on the development of Aquatic Macrophytes through effects of endocrine disruption in aquatic birds.

Development non-invasive biomarkers and methods in toxicology of wildlife.

Transversely, work in the study of new biomarkers and methods of sampling that they do not involve capture of the animals to study. In some cases is possible get to rating the exposure to contaminants and the appearance of effects of such exposure in samples not invasive as Lee or feathers. Many of these biomarkers we work with (oxidative stress, vitamins, carotenoids, porphyrins and biliverdin) are useful for other research groups as markers of quality of the individual.

Botulism in waterfowl.

The wetlands of La Mancha, like the majority of Spanish wetlands, have sporadic outbreaks of botulism that can kill thousands of aquatic birds. The detection and quantification of the gen of toxin botulinum by the PCR technique in time real helps us to investigate the factors that trigger outbreaks. This line has been studied the epidemiology of this disease in the La Mancha wetlands.

Master's degree
BASIC RESEARCH AND APPLIED IN HUNTING RESOURCES

The general objective of our Master's Degree in Basic and Applied Research in Game and Wildlife is the training of graduates for developing scientific research in the field of wildlife, particularly hunting species.

The Master is presented as a specific offer of knowledge about wild and hunted species level specialized and complementary to the titles of degree of different degrees for those students wishing to increase their training in Ecology, biology, health, reproduction and management of wildlife, particularly of the hunting.

Is established as objectives specific of the Master that the students acquire the following skills:

    • Know, understand and be able to update the theoretical and practical foundations of a scientific and technical nature on research on wildlife and other resources of hunting interest.
    • Generate initiative for research in the field of wildlife and their environment.
    • Knowing the dynamics of work of the various research teams from a center dedicated to the study of the hunting fauna, understanding its role in the overall system of r & d.
    • Master the techniques of laboratory and instrumentation of greater use in wildlife research.
    • Addressing the realization of scientific projects on wildlife and other resources of hunting interest: approach, resource selection, hypothesis, analysis results, presentation and discussion of them.
    • Be capable of transmitting the research interest in hunting resources, presented in an appealing way the progress made thanks to it, and its impact at the social level and in other areas of research and development.
    • Be able to select the most suitable experimental model for the purposes of scientific research on wild or hunting wildlife.

Master's degree
ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY IN THE LOCAL AND TERRITORIAL DEVELOPMENT

Master's degree in environmental sustainability in Local development and Territorial offers advanced and multidisciplinary training in the areas of environmental sustainability and global change. This Master will answer, on the one hand, the need to facilitate the progressive incorporation of highly qualified personnel in centres, institutions and companies where their work will be useful to promote local and regional development models really sustainable, and, on the other hand, a social demand that demands more and top researchers in the field of monitoring of global change and their impacts on natural heritage and environmental quality.

The overall objective of the Master is to complement the training of qualified academics and professionals related to environmental issues that wish to expand their knowledge and improve their skills to become experts or researchers within institutions or public and private enterprises. Therefore, the Master's programme is designed to gain a multidisciplinary perspective and integration of environmental issues as a key piece of sustainability, as well as a solid base of knowledge about the most appropriate existing instruments for diagnosis, monitoring, assessment, recovery and adequate management of the natural heritage (biodiversity and geodiversity) and environmental quality against the pressures of global change, as well as in the application of criteria, tools and technologies to promote sustainable management modes in the local and territorial development. In so far as in the process of monitoring of sustainability management and research converge, has been taken as a proper reference to double research and professional profile with which the Master has been structured.

PhD
PhD in agricultural and environmental sciences (verified according to Royal Decree 99/2011)

The doctoral program in agricultural engineering and science is composed of several centers of the UCLM, combining personal efforts and materials for a range of the highest quality and warranty. The participating centres are as follows:

      • Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Agrónomos y Montes (ETSIAM) from Albacete. She was held in, since 1999, the doctoral program in science and agricultural engineering, with more than 80 thesis read from this date.
      • Ciudad Real (IREC) hunting resources Research Institute. It gave the program of doctorate in basic research and applied in hunting resources, from other earlier that began in 2002, and which received a mention toward excellence courses for 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 and 2013-2014. In these programs you have read more than 40 thesis.
      • Faculty of environmental sciences and Biochemistry (MA) of Toledo. The first of the Department of environmental sciences doctoral program is approved by the UCLM in 2002, converting later to the reality of the doctoral program Faculty: tools and methods for the study and conservation of the Natural Environment). During your career you have read some 20 theses.
      • School of engineers agronomists (IA) of Ciudad Real.

The participating centres, with a long tradition in research, have in common their approach to agricultural and environmental subjects with biology applied as basic element in common and the interaction of its various fields of knowledge with the environment. On the lines of research of the program are integrated, complementing, contents of agricultural production, forest production, production and animal health, ecology, global change, aerobiology, biodiversity, biotechnology and genetics study or Engineering.

As a result of the participation of the different centers, their teachers and lines of research that are articulated, it is a comprehensive doctoral, inclusive of complementary skills program, multidisciplinary and reference in the Middle environment and agricultural production systems, focused on so-called "green engineering" and thorough understanding of biological systems and their interactions.
In addition, it boasts the participation of researchers from other institutions, which will collaborate in the programme by means of collaboration agreements to the effect. Among them you can stand out by its scientific significance, the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC). He is also with the collaboration of the centers of research and experimentation of the Junta of communities of Castilla - La Mancha in agricultural matters, becoming the benchmark agricultural regional research program. Likewise, it counts with the collaboration of different researchers and research groups from the program with the National Institute of research y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria (INIA).
