As the previous edition, the Master's Degree Program in "Biodiversity in 
Tropical Areas and its conservation" is a one-year MSc program (75 ECTS) 
offered jointly by the International University Menendez Pelayo (UIMP, 
Ministry of Education, Spain), the Spanish National Research Council

Ecuador (UCE, Ecuador). The program is fully funded by the CSIC, with a 
strong emphasis on fellowships for Latinamerican students; the title is

will be taught in Ecuador, with an emphasis on practical studies in 
natural reserves. The program is international, with a minimum of 15 and

Jardin Botanico, Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales, etc.) through
