Title variants

Languages of publication



This paper is a photographic summary of studies carried out in August 2010 in the Meruri village, Bororo Indigenous Territory, which is in the Mato Grosso State, Brazil, in the Savanna biome. A scientific expedition was carried out to analyze the environmental impacts of a project in the region and more specifically the possible interferences in the life of the indigenous inhabitants of the region and live in harmony with the environment. The photos show some structures of indigenous villages, the Das Garças River, the Savanna where studies were carried out and some of the bird species registered.
