Wildlife Toxicology

The malvasia duck (Oxyura leucocephala) is object of our studies by being a bird threatened with a high incidence of plumbismo (photo: M.A. Taggart).

The Research Group Toxicology and Ecotoxicology Wildlife of the Instituto de Investigación en Recursos Cinegéticos (IREC – CSIC, UCLM, JCCM) It is created in mid-2003 and since then has worked in the exposure assessment to different types of toxic wildlifeAnd to study the effects they can have on the individual and the conservation of stocks. In addition, we studied the implications for food security This type of pollution is hunting for meat.

Contaminants and scenarios studied are diverse and include the pesticides and fertilizers used in agriculture, Heavy metal contamination caused by past mining activities in areas currently engaged in the production of big game and livestock, contamination associated with the use of lead shot or andMPACT toxins and microbiological agents the quality of game meat.

At present, the Research Group in Wildlife Toxicology IREC is part of the Ecotoxicology thematic network of the CSIC, from the Wildlife Toxicology Interest Group de la Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) y de la European Raptor Biomonitoring Facility.

Contamination by metals heavy originated by the activity mining

Predation mining of heavy metals leaves a legacy of contamination by high levels of heavy metals in soils and plants are also transferred to the animals that inhabit these areas including game species, livestock and meat. In this issue we work studying sublethal effects of pollution on animals exposed in the countryside, and the implications that this entails in terms of food security.

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

Predation accumulation of lead shot in wetlands sediments around the stalls hunting produces high prevalences plumbismo en aves acuáticas en España. Actualmente, tras la prohibición del perdigón de plomo para la caza en zonas húmedas, estamos empezando a observar una menor tasa ingestión de perdigones de plomo que se refleja a su vez en una menor contaminación de la carne de caza. En esta línea se trabaja en los efectos del plomo en las aves, tanto en campo como de forma experimental, y en las implicaciones que tiene esta contaminación a nivel poblacional y en la seguridad alimentaria de la carne de caza.

Study of the effect of the use of pesticides and other agrochemicals in them species hunting of medium agricultural

The use of pesticides in agriculture has a negative impact on the sustainability of hunting. The effects the use of agrochemicals can be both indirect, due to the reduction of biodiversity and the exploitable biomass game species such as direct toxic effect that some pesticides can have on animals. This line works studying the risk of exposure and the effects of pesticides and other agrochemicals in wildlife through field studies and experimental.

Diagnosis of accidental and intentional poisoning in wildlife and reduction of the use of the poison by chemical conditioned aversion using

One of the leading causes of mortality in wildlife are unintentional poisonings by illegal use of poison to kill predators that cause losses in livestock, hunting and agricultural productions. In this line working on techniques for Diagnosis of poisoning by techniques of chemical analysis and biomarkers. Monitoring carried out allows to obtain epidemiological data useful for better control of illegal use of poison. In recent years we have worked in the use of conditioned aversion to certain prey using chemicals in order to reduce conflict of predation and thus the motivation for the use of poison.

Monitoring of contaminants organic persistent in wildlife

The organochlorines como el p,p’-DDE (metabolito del DDT) son acumulados en los tejidos de los animales que ocupan niveles altos de la cadena trófica, como son todos los depredadores, llegando a producirles efectos adversos en la reproducción, la función inmune u otros mecanismos mediados por el sistema endocrino. En esta línea estudiamos los factores que definen el riesgo de exposición a contaminantes persistentes y los efectos que estos pueden tener en los animales en el campo.

Chemical pollution in the Tablas de Daimiel by waste water discharges

Several wetlands are manchegos sewage water treated more or less directly from nearby populations. Las Tablas de Daimiel suffers the effect of discharges through the two rivers that supply them, the Gigüela and the Guadiana, since the populations located upstream lack effective treatment systems for discharges. The wastewater discharges, in addition to negatively affecting the physicochemical parameters of the water, carry chemical contaminants of very different types. This line ranges from effects on the development of aquatic macrophytes to effects of endocrine disruption in waterfowl.

The use of herbicides affects the availability of habitat for many species, including hunting. (Author: Matthew R.).

Development of biomarkers and methods not invasive in toxicology of fauna silvestre

Transversally, we work in the study of new biomarkers and sampling methods which do not involve the capture of animals to study. In some cases it is possible to assess exposure to pollutants and the onset of effects of exposure on non-invasive samples as feces or feathers. Many of these biomarkers we work (oxidative stress, vitamins, carotenoids, porphyrins and biliverdina) are useful for other research groups as markers of quality of the individual.

Botulism in waterfowl

Manchego wetlands, like most Spanish wetlands, present Sporadic outbreaks of botulism that may kill thousands of waterfowl. Detection and quantification of the gene of botulinum toxin by the technique of real time PCR serves to investigate factors that trigger outbreaks. This line has studied the epidemiology of this disease in wetlands Mancha.

Master in Research Basic and Apliacada Hunting Resources (MUIBARC)

The overall objective of our Master's Degree in Basic and Applied Research in Game Resources (MUIBARC) It is the training of graduates capable of developing scientific research tasks in the field of wildlife, particularly hunting.

This Master is seen as a offer specific knowledge of wild game species and specialized level and complementary to that of the degrees of various degrees for students seeking to enhance their training in ecology, biology, health, reproduction and wildlife management.

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 in Environmental Sustainability in Local Development and Territorial

The Master in Environmental Sustainability in Local Development and Territorial offers advanced and multidisciplinary training in the fields of environmental sustainability and global change. This Master will respond, on the one hand, to the need to facilitate the progressive incorporation of highly qualified personnel in centers, institutions and companies where their work can be useful in promoting truly sustainable local and territorial models of development, and, on the other, to a social demand that demands more and better researchers in the field of monitoring global change and its 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 in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences

This doctoral program consists of several centers of the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM), combining personal efforts and materials for an offer of the highest quality and warranty. Participating centers are:

  • 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).
