Aline Martinez is an ecologist who investigates the factors that influence the structure and functioning of marine ecosystems. Her work is mostly based on field experimentation to test ecological theories that provide important information for science, environmental conservation and management. Aline is particularly interested in understanding the effects of multiple stressors associated with urbanization on benthic coastal assemblages. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)

The rapid increase in coastal urbanization is a major threat to global biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. The abundance, composition and distribution of species has been modified with the urban sprawl, which has contributed to the loss of local biodiversity, introduction of non-native species and changes in the biological processes of communities. A major issue associated with urba...
Cities are expanding worldwide as human population is increasing exponentially. Urbanization is spreading uneven on land with a rapid occupation of the coast line, which currently poses a major threat to marine biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. The main problems associated with urban sprawl in the marine environment are the increased pollution and the replacement of natural shore...
