- Research Grants
Biological Sciences graduate from the Universidade de São Paulo (2005) and Master's and Doctoral degrees in Zoology from Universidade de São Paulo (2009). Has experience in Zoology and Ecology, with emphasis on ornithology, population ecology, community ecology, landscape ecology, ecological modeling, conservation biology and taxonomy. Is interested in population and community ecology research and monitoring that combine thorough study design and field studies based on quantitative sampling and modeling, and their application toward decision-making for conservation (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Diurnal raptors are, among other bird taxa, traditionally considered appropriate environmental quality indicators. Studies suggest, however, that this might not be a general characteristic of the group, but one conditional to each species' natural history (Rodriguez-Estrella et al. 1998). As regards Neotropical birds of prey, the natural history of most species is still poorly known (Ol...
Research tools such as ecological models and remote sensing have shown increasing usefulness in the understanding of the behavior of populations or natural systems and in conservation decision-making, but are still timidly utilized in raptor biology and conservation studies, and even more so for Neotropical species. Habitat loss and degradation is increasing in most non- forest natural ...
