Instituto de Biologia
The scientific and technical staff of the Instituto de Biología has the privilege and enormous responsibility of maintaining and developing the National Collections of Flora and Fauna. Due to this task and the still limited knowledge of the Mexican flora and fauna, it is desirable and highly justified for the Institute to have classical taxonomy as its central study line, accompanied by a focus on the understanding of the origin, interrelationships and evolution of biodiversity in Mexico.
Affiliation: Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM)
Type of Organization: Research Center or Laboratory
