Marisa Tellez

Expertise in Crocodilian Parasitology. Currently, my project examines how human and environmental impact has affected the biodiversity of Ambergris Caye, Belize through an interdisciplinary approach that incorporates parasitology, community ecology, ecotoxicology, and conservation biology. Moreover, it is anticipated that this study will reflect the standards of translational ecology as data will assist in habitat and wildlife management, as well as assist in setting a positive standard .
