Our lab studies spatial patterns of biodiversity and their underlying evolutionary and ecological processes, with the explicit aim of improving biodiversity prediction and conservation.

 

Our projects focus on biogeography, integrative uses of comparative phylogeography, GIS-based distribution models, current environmental data and paleoclimatic simulations, physiology, and genomics - with a focus  in the Brazilian Atlantic rainforest.
