The thematic network "Biodiversity of Insects in the Amazon" (rede BIA) comprises a group of researchers, students, and technicians interconnected in execution modules by a communication system, with the central theme the Amazonian insects. Important to notice that this is the first thematic network with efforts focused only on the insects and aims the knowledge, conservation allowance, and the sustainable use of the insect diversity, thus avoiding duplicated efforts on the target groups with other ecological initiatives, like PPBio, GEOMA, and Cenários, but allowing the projects to articulate with them to generate interactions with already stablished networks or research programs.
