SCIANTS Amazonia is an initiative that aims to promote scientific information to increase knowledge about the diversity of ants in the Amazonia. Founded in 2021, the base of the project is at the Museu Paraense Emílio Goeldi (Belém, Pará, Brazil) and has the participation of researchers from the subjects of ecology, taxonomy, systematics, conservation, natural history, and public outreach. The project also has a collaborative network of researchers from public and private institutions, national and international. SCIANTS Amazonia has four key focus areas:
of ants through the use of different collection methodologies and techniques
public policies and practices for the protection of species and the conservation of ecosystems using scientific knowledge
and description of the diversity of ant species
of the results to the specialized and non-specialized public
Through these initiatives, we intend that SCIANTS Amazonia will inspire actions for the study and conservation of ant species in the Amazonia through collaborative efforts, promoting the development of Brazilian science together with the conservation of the world’s largest and most diverse tropical forest and ancestral home of traditional peoples.
Sampling and documenting species of ants in the Amazonia, filling knowledge gaps and promoting the conservation of the Amazonia.
Conducting research through a collaborative and multidisciplinary network.
