The Agroecosytems and Rural Landscapes Research Group formalized within the Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata in the early 90s, under the inicial name of Group of Agroecology. Since that formalisation to date, the teaching and research team has established an academic environment in which several undergraduate and graduate theses have been made, many papers and books published and courses have been regularly dictated.
Currently, the Group is part of the department of Ecology, Faculty of Agricultural Sciences of UNMDP. In our group there are 25 members including researchers from the University, CONICET, INTA, graduate students and personnel. Our research and transfer activities involve three main areas: a) assessment and modeling of ecosystem services, b) socio-ecological valuation of biodiversity, and c) rural land-use planning.
