Lúcia Garcez Lohmann


Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Instituto de Biociências (IB)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Lúcia G. Lohmann has an undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of São Paulo, Brazil (1995), a Masters degree, and a Graduate Certificate in Tropical Biology Conservation from the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL, 1998), and a Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution, and Systematics from the University of Missouri-St.Louis (1998, 2003). She was a post-doctoral fellow at the CCSD (Center for Conservation and Sustainable Development) at the Missouri Botanical Garden (2004). She holds an adjunct faculty position at the Department of Botany of the University of São Paulo (USP, since 2004), serves as Executive Director of the Association for Tropical Biology Conservation (ATBC, since 2019), and President of the International Association for Plant Taxonomy (IAPT, desde 2023). She is also a Research Associate at the Missouri Botanical Garden (MOBOT, since 2004) and the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG, since 2008). She currently serves as Director of the UC/JEPS Herbaria and Professor at the Department of Integrative Biology of the University of California, Berkeley. She is a member of the São Paulo Academy of Sciences (ACIESP, since 2020), a corresponding member of the Botanical Society of America (BSA, since 2020), and an honorary member of the American Academy of Arts Sciences (AAAS, since 2021). Her research is highly integrative, combining components of taxonomy, molecular systematics, ecology, and evolution to understand the processes that have shaped the history of diversification and biogeography in the Neotropics. Much of her research focuses on the plant family Bignoniaceae, a conspicuous component of Neotropical forests. The exhaustive exploration of the Neotropical Bignoniaceae established the basis for comparative multi-disciplinary studies combining similar datasets for other organisms with climatic, geologic, and paleontological data, aiming to reconstruct the origin and evolution of biotas, especially the Amazon.

Published in July 01, 2016 - Pesquisa FAPESP. Geogenomics is a new discipline aimed at explaining biological diversity in tropical rainforests. With projects focused on the Amazon and the Atlantic Forest, biologists and geologists explain how the interplay among different areas of knowledge contributes to research development.
