Introduction
I am from Brazil and had my BSc and MSc from Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul. Now, I am a PhD Student at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, MA, and I am interested in understanding how predation risk may alter the neurobiology of prey. My PhD project will examine how predation risk infleunces the cognitive behaviour (learning and memory), stress physiology, and neurobiology (brains) of free-living small mammals.

The rapid expansion of urban areas in which natural and semi-natural areas are replaced by human infrastructure, is a major threat to biodiversity worldwide. However, little is known about how the structure of biotic communities is affected by urbanization in the tropics. Here, we tested the effect of land use types and pond size in urban and rural...

Purpose of Review We conducted a literature review to understand how landscape patterns affect ecological processes in metacommunities in lentic environments. Our aim was to identify trends in these studies considering taxa, aquatic systems, landscape metrics, and response variables. We also recorded whether studies were presenting the exclusive ef...

Temperature affects most aspects of ectotherm life history, including physiology and behavior. Studying thermal sensitivity of jumping performance in frogs can help understanding the influence of temperature on different aspects of frog life. Still, studies on the effects of temperature on amphibians are commonly carried out on terrestrial and tree...

The genus Leptodactylus (Leptodactylidae) includes 74 species, distributed from southern North America to southern South America, and the West Indies. The species Leptodactylus labyrinthicus is popularly known as the pepper frog because it produces toxic substances, which causes irritation. The aims of this study were to (i) evaluate the compositio...
