Biological Research Station Panguana

The biological research station Panguana is the oldest biological research station in Peru, founded in 1968 by the biologists Maria and Hans-Wilhelm Koepke and named after a common native tinamou species (Crypturellus undulatus). Since 2000, their daughter, Juliane Diller, has been running the station and since 2003, there exists a co-operation between the Zoological State Collection Munich (ZSM), where Juliane works, and the Natural History Museum in Lima, Peru.

Scientific studies over the last 50 years resulted in over 180 publications and numerous new species identifications.
