General publications are those who compile the overall performance of projects or research topics of INVEMAR, they have not been subjected to review by peers.
National Research Program on Marine and Coastal Biodiversity - PNIBM. Action Plan 2001 - 2010, 2000.
Colombia is one of the most biologically diverse countries, because with only 0.7% of the land surface has about 15% of global biodiversity. This biodiversity has been used by traditional communities and is based direct and indirect in numerous productive activities, which play a strategic role in national development, and future opportunities for sustainable development. The National Research Program on Marine Biodiversity - PNIBM - which is presented in this publication aims to become the road map that would assist in generating and stimulating scientific capacity to generate information as a basis for the conservation and sustainable use of marine and coastal biodiversity.
Bibliographic references published and unpublished of the Cienaga Grande de Santa Marta, Colombian Caribbean, 1996.
This catalog contains documents that hardly would be found in libraries or bookstores. These documents constitute an important source of information on the Cienaga Grande de Santa Marta, useful for anyone interested in working for the benefit of the ecosystem and for its inhabitants.
National environmental policy for sustainable development of ocean and coastal areas and islands in Colombia, 2001
Coastal areas are home to three-quarters of the world population, they are also recipients of the impacts generated by the form of land use by the population living in watersheds that supply. This Policy is based on promoting the use of the tools offered to us to allocate sustainable marine and coastal uses of the national territory, to promote better forms of government to harmonize and articulate coastal development planning by sectors, conservation and restoration of goods and services provided by their ecosystems, the generation of knowledge that allows the collection of strategic information, for decision making of the integrated management of these areas and encourage community self-management processes and learning processes to integrate the multiple users of the coastal zone in its sustainable management.
Ojo con Gorgona. (An eye on Gorgona). National Natural Park, 2001.
The Pacific covers one of the most biologically diverse regions of the planet. Its geographical position is one of the areas with more abundant water, the mangroves are considered the largest and best developed in the Americas, its fishery productivity doubles the Caribbean Sea. From the marine protected areas in the Pacific, stands Gorgona Island, declared National Park in 1983 by the National Government, taking into account its high biological and landscape value and the need to ensure the protection of natural resources.
The red book of marine fishes from Colombia, 2002.
The red books identify those species in higher risk of extinction in the country and recommend a series of appropriate measures for their conservation, so they become valuable tools for the dissemination and guidance for environmental authorities, the scientific community, and civil society and control agencies across the country.
The red book of marine invertebrates from Colombia, 2002
A first step in preserving marine biodiversity that we have is to adhere to the initiative of the World Conservation Union (IUCN) in the preparation of lists and red books of endangered species, by which Colombia assesses the conservation status and threats of its species and proposes recommendations and strategies for the conservation of its biodiversity.
The waters of my Cienaga Grande
This document describes in a simple and schematic way the different processes that take place in the CGSM, facilitating the understanding of the phenomena that occur there, allowing everyone involved and interested in the rehabilitation of this important environmental system of the Colombian Caribbean, to get closer to its complex problematic , where the human element remains a significant factor in both solutions, as in the magnitude of environmental changes of that system.
Report on the state of coastal and marine resources, 2001.
The purpose of this report is to provide the necessary scientific knowledge about the state of the environment and marine and coastal resources for policy formulation, decision making and preparation of plans and projects aimed at sustainable resource management, the recovery of marine and coastal environment and improved quality of life of Colombians.
Handbook for the farming of marine bivalve in the Colombian Caribbean
Bivalves such as oysters, scallops, mussels and clams, are found worldwide and have long been classified as a delicacy, reaching a high commercial value. Because in the Colombian Caribbean, there is the potential to produce oysters and taking into account that they are a source of protein needed in the daily diet, this practical guide is presented as a tool for those who wish to cultivate oysters and marine bivalves. Thus, INVEMAR contributes to the development of environmentally sustainable technologies and social appropriation of these to improve the quality of life of the inhabitants of our shores.
Approximation to the current state of bio-prospecting in Colombia.
In Colombia, INVEMAR cooperates with other groups in chemistry investigation of marine natural products, so far, about 60 species of sponges, two starfish, two brittle stars, and two octocoral unicea (type of Coral) have been collected for assessment of bioactivity and chemical studies. The Jakarta Mandate considers genetic biodiversity and natural products as a key element in the economic development of countries like Colombia, which for its rich biodiversity, is likely to profit from processing and marketing of natural products derived from bio-prospecting.
National Plan on continental and marine bio-prospecting
In recent times the value of biodiversity has been explored and demonstrated using biotechnology to develop pharmaceuticals, agricultural and industrial products, but with this proposal, it´s intended to re-take the use of biodiversity in a broader context, not just in biotechnology but technology in general and traditional forms of resource use, check on the diversity prospecting new opportunities for growth and development in light of the sustainable use of resources.
Concepts and methodological guide to integrated coastal zone management in Colombia. Manual 1: preparation, characterization, and diagnosis.
The Institute has worked on developing a conceptual basis and methodological for addressing a special planning process such as the Integrated Coastal Zone Management, and thus develop a management approach to harmonize the cultural, economic and environmental values, and balance environmental protection and economic development of coastal areas in Colombia.
Manual of analytical techniques for the determination of physicochemical parameters and marine pollutants: water, sediments and organisms, 2003
The coastal cities dump waste and wastewater into our seas, the industries dump organic matter, and substances such as hydrocarbons and heavy metals, and toxics are found in our river as a result of agricultural activities. For this reason we are forced to investigate the environmental consequences of such actions.
