Examination of correlations between chameleons and plants in the Vohimana reserve, Madagascar
This research project is part of a Master's degree in Biology at the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland).
This research project, part of a Master's degree in Biology at the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland), aims to study the relationship between chameleon species and plant characteristics in the Vohimana reserve in Madagascar. It is being carried out by the Chameleon Center Conservation, in partnership with the Parc Zoologique de Paris (Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle) and the NGO L'Homme et L'Environnement.
Drawing on the local knowledge of Madagascan guides, this study will examine the habitat preferences of chameleons based on the characteristics of plants as micro-habitats.
The results of this research will have a direct impact on the conservation of chameleons and their habitat, while highlighting the importance of collaboration with local communities. This is a unique opportunity to contribute to the preservation of Madagascar's biodiversity and to promote concrete conservation measures.
