bachelor's at Biociências from Universidade de São Paulo (1997), master's at Zoology from Universidade de São Paulo (2001) and doctorate at Zoology from Universidade de São Paulo (2005). Has experience in Zoology, focusing on Taxonomy of the Recent Groups, acting on the following subjects: neotropics, taxonomy, brazilian fauna, harvestmen and gonyleptidae. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
The systematics of neotropical harvestmen has advanced in the last three decades thanks to the inclusion of new data sources. The family Gonyleptidae stands out as the main component of the Brazilian harvestmen fauna, being the best studied, with 16 subfamilies. Among the unrevised subfamilies, Pachylinae is one of the greatest challenges because of its polyphyly and being the richest i...
Opiliones is the third most diverse group in Arachnida, with ca. 6,000 species, only less diverse than Araneae and Acari. Considering this species rich group and its taxonomical history, there are still no propositions of phylogenetic relationships at species level for many groups, rendering evolutive studies considerably difficult. The taxonomy of the group is complex and confusing due...
