PARADA, Esperanza  y  PEREDO, Santiago. RELOCATION AS A TOOL FOR BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION AND MANAGEMENT: LESSONS FROM DIPLODON CHILENSIS (GRAY 1828) (BIVALVIA, HYRIIDAE) STUDIES . Gayana (Concepc.) [online]. 2005, vol.69, n.1, pp. 41-47. ISSN 0717-6538.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-65382005000100007.

We deliver some lessons learned from a long-term relocation project, carried out in the hyriid Diplodon chilensis. The present document analyses the causes of the declination of these populations in Chile and the use of relocation as a strategy of aquatic biodiversity conservation and management. These lessons analyze the regards we have to caution before, during and after the process of relocation of a population and the ecological, sanitary and evolutive implications of the relocation programs. We conclude that relocation is a valuable tool for conservation and management of freshwater mussel populations and feasible to carry out successfully taking into account the considerations pointed out previously
