Graduate in Biological Sciences (FFCLRP-USP), PhD in Sciences (Entomology), with a training period at Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (France). Professor at Institute of Education, Science and Technology 'Goiano', campus Rio Verde. My research encompasses taxonomy, phylogenetics and ecology of Hymenoptera, focusing on systematics and evolution of Chalcidoidea, particularly fig wasps (Agaonidae). (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Host plant selection by phytophagous insects is driven by multiple factors, and even generalist species show preference hierarchies due to the host quality as a resource. The Neotropical Agaonidae wasps represent an interesting model for studying the evolution of host specialization, due to the high specificity of its association with Ficus (Moraceae) and their diversified life historie...
The association between fig trees (Moraceae, Ficus) and their pollinating wasps (Agaonidae: Agaoninae, Kradibiinae and Tetrapusiinae) is one of the most renowned examples of plant-insect mutualisms. Due to their highly specific association, phylogenetic relationships of figs and fig wasps have been widely studied, and it has been largely hypothesized that both pollinating and non-pollin...
Sycophaginae is the most diverse and abundant subfamily of wasps associated to Ficus in the Neotropical region. There are two genera belonging to this subfamily in the neotropics: Anidarnes Boucek 1993 e Idarnes Walker 1843. The candidate's PhD project intends to review Idarnes and analyze the phylogenetic relationships in the genus. The candidate intends to visit the CBGP-France to (1)...
