Research on their natural history and ecology was published in three scientific journals.

After eight decades without scientific publications on their natural history and limited studies on their ecology, researchers confirmed the presence of 49 species belonging to the order Odonata in Puerto Rico.

They also found that the canalization of rivers and streams can affect the abundance of these organisms in urban habitats, and identified that three Caribbean endemic species are abundant in two streams of El Yunque National Forest.

A well-known mathematics postulate states that: “Through any two points, there is exactly one straight line." Our reality, of course, is much more complicated than that. The life journey of a person is more like the curvy roads of PR-1, or “La Piquiña.”

A perfect example of this is scientist James Ayala González, who started his professional life as a jazz musician and today is a behavioral researcher at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, Sichuan Province, Peoples Republic of China.

Ivia Moreno Rosado: A Borinqueña in China

From an early age I have been interested in understanding the interactions between the fauna, the ecosystem and humans. These interests played a key role in my decision of pursuing my undergraduate studies in biology at the Metropolitan University (UMET) of the Ana G. Méndez System. During my sophomore year I took a botany course with Professor Eva Dávila. That experience helped define my next steps. Professor Dávila became a mentor and I worked in her laboratory in several projects related to zoology and botany.
