I am interested in population ecology and in the link between large and small-scale ecological interactions in insect communities. Actually, I have been focused on consequences of spatiotemporal variation in quality of patch and their effects on changes in foraging strategies, behavior, movement and global and regional patterns in species distribution and abundance. My research involves the development of theoretical models in conjunction with experiments or observations in the field or laboratory. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Many studies have addressed the consequences of habitat modifications on structure of communities based on evaluations and analyses of landscapes that already were disturbed and/or partially fragmented. Majority of these studies have focused on static landscapes, neglecting the dynamic of natural landscapes, in which restoration of habitats and occurrence of new disturbances affect cont...
The disturbance occurrences resulting in habitat destruction and fragmentation can limit the species' movement on the landscape and facilitate the invasion of exotic species with high competitive abilities. The biological invasion can reduce the native species diversity when native species present low fitness to explore different patch qualities on the post-disturbance landscape. Howeve...
In this study the persistence of host-parasitoid interaction will be analyzed experimentally and theoretically upon two perspectives: non spatial and spatial structured systems. The host populations will be represented by C. megacephala (Diptera: Calliphoridae) and parasitoid populations by Nasonia vitripennis (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae). The inherent factors of metapopulation systems a...
This study aims to verify the effects of different movement patterns on host-parasitoid coexistence in ephemeral patches. We will use a host-parasitoid system consisting of necrophagous Diptera species and their pupal parasitoids. The basal resources used by the host species will be assumed to be ephemeral, supporting only one generation of individuals before completely disappearing fro...
