ECIM: Coastal Marine Research Station

ECIM: Coastal Marine Research Station

The Coastal Marine Research Station (ECIM) is a research and teaching entity of the School of Biological Sciences at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Since its establishment in 1982 in a beautiful rocky cliff in the village of Las Cruces, ECIM has maintained a coastal marine reserve, one of the oldest and best studied in the world. This reserve was recently declared a Protected Coastal Marine Area.

ECIM has aquariums, laboratories and core facilities that permit undergraduate (Marine Biology major) and graduate education and research in various areas of biology, ecology and oceanography. A significant number of projects, theses and seminars are organized in laboratories, giving rise to more than 20 scientific publications per year.

EDIEM: Mediterranean Ecological Research Station

EDIEM: Mediterranean Ecological Research Station

The Mediterranean Ecological Research Station (EDIEM) is part of the School of Biological Sciences Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and is mainly associated with the Department of Ecology.

The main objective of the EDIEM is to enable the development of field research in areas of Mediterranean climate in central Chile. Its proximity to academic centers associated with it, its representative Mediterranean ecosystems, and the fact that it is in a protected area of ??foothills make it the ideal center for ecological studies. Moreover, the station supports undergraduate and graduate education within the School of Biological Sciences, PUC and other educational institutions.
