Master Degree in Biology ( Ecology) from the National Institute of Amazonian Research - INPA (2008-2010) and graduated in Ecology from Universidade Estadual Paulista Julio de Mesquita Filho - UNESP (2001- 2006) . I am currently a PHd Candidate in the Ecology and Biodiversity Program at UNESP . I have experience in Plant Ecology , with emphasis on Ecosystem Ecology , Biodiversity, Phenology , Seed Dispersal and Forest Inventories . My focus of interest is in the floodplain forests of the great Amazonian rivers and in management of Brazilian Protected Areas. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Water availability plays a key role in maintaining forest cover and distribution of plant species. The geological history of South America during the Neogene and the Quaternary is closely linked with watersheds and currently about 30% of the continent is classified as wetlands. The existence of these environments since the Neogene potentially influence the evolution and speciation of pl...
Biodiversity is a common good of global concern. Nonetheless, much of the life on Earth is threatened by both local and global human actions. The steep increase of biodiversity loss is not accompanied by the same pace of our understanding of biodiversity distribution and evolution. Australian researchers and institutions are at the frontier of biodiversity assessment, producing much val...
Neotropical biodiversity has intrigued scientists over more than a century. Recent advances in molecular techniques and phylogenetic tools are providing new clues for diversification processes in Neotropical Biomes, such as Amazon forests. New phylogenetic evidence suggests Neotropical clade diversification patterns are profoundly influenced by ecology, and geographical effects may be l...
