Since 2014, the ITM has been developing a research line on road ecology, which aims to contribute to the knowledge and search for solutions to the effects that road infrastructure generates on the environment. The II CIBIV was attended by about 120 people from several Latin American countries. During this event, 46 oral presentations were made, 8 in the form of video posters, 6 plenary lectures were given by renowned international experts in the area of road ecology, and two spaces were opened for discussion and strengthening of academic relations.
