On October 10, field activities began with 4 teams of 3 people each, between Los Ríos and Los Lagos. These teams will be in the field until the beginning of January 2024, carefully capturing rodents and bats to take biological samples and later -in 2024 and 2025- perform molecular analyses that will allow us to understand which are the pathogens of possible diseases that could be transmitted in places where habitat fragmentation has been accentuated during the last years in the south of Chile. We want to understand how habitat fragmentation, land use and land use change can generate a risk factor for public health and animal health.
