The main activities of the visiting researcher Lee A. Dyer are associated to the development of the Thematic Project "Dimensions US-Biota São Paulo: chemically mediated multi-trophic inter-action diversity across tropical gradients" (Process FAPESP: 2014/50316-7; 2015-2020). This project is being developed in a direct partnership with this collaborator and was approved within the context of the FAPESP-NSF call, in which Lee Dyer coordinates the project in the USA. In this phase of the Thematic projects we seek the integration of the data through discussion of the results that have been obtained so far by the two projects. In order to optimize his visit, activities are addressed to include a graduate course to be offered in the Graduate Program in IQUSP, in addition to several meetings with researchers of the Thematic project.
