The laboratories linked to the graduate program in environmental biology are located on the Campus of Bragança of the Federal University of Pará. Many of them are consolidadados, while others are already in the process of consolidating their lines of research. Some have been expanded and others are working in entirely new buildings. There are more than 15 laboratories, in which all lines of research lines of the program have laboratories.

Lab 1: Mangrove Ecology Laboratory (LAMA)

Description and history: The first activities of Mangrove Ecology Laboratory (LAMA) took place in the building where worked the old classroom of the graduate program in environmental biology (PPBA) Campus of Braganza in the year 2002. The day March 03 2006, Ordinance number 013 to 2006 formally appointed Dr. Marcus Emanuel Barroncas Fernandes as coordinator of the mud. From that date, with new perspectives, the lab began to expand their lines of research and its students and alumni, consolidating the current creation of mangrove Ecology Laboratory. The MUD is part of the Faculty of biological sciences, the Institute for Coastal Studies (IECOS), which is headquartered on the Campus of Bragança, Northeastern Pará State.

The MUD has kept its activities through national and international sources, which have provided the production of books, book chapters and scientific articles on various topics related to mangroves in the Brazilian Amazon. Therefore, any publication made available on this site is the result of this funding and from the date of creation, as a matter of fact, this lab, the year of 2002.

Coordinator: Dr. Marcus Emanuel Fernandes Barroncas
