Introduction
Felipe Shibuya is a Brazilian ecologist (PhD, Federal University of Paraná) and visual artist (MFA, State University of New York at Buffalo). Currently, he is the Hyundai Biological Programs Fellow at Edna W. Lawrence Nature Lab, at Rhode Island School of Design. In his scientific-artistic work, he always highlights the visuality of nature, such as the colors and shapes of bacteria.

Thesis
Full-text available
Color is fundamental for any form of life on Earth. Life as we know it, is only possible by the presence of oxygen, in which plants, algae, and cyanobacteria use a greenish pigment— chlorophyll—as a basis for photosynthesis. In nature, color plays different roles in different species, but in general its responsible for mechanisms that guide evoluti...
Conference Paper

In our indulgence to touch immortality, our fear of being forgotten, our unconvincingly altruistic embrace of selflove, our attempt to get rid of social and biological pressures or simply the uncaring lightness of an inadvertent encounter, we grip the reproductive practice Today's tales of the birds and the bees are a wholly different reproductive...

Immigrants are central to the identity of the United States, the population of which has grown in number and diversity as a function of new arrivals from around the globe. This article describes a visualization project that uses the visual metaphor of tree rings to explore the contribution of immigrants to the country’s population. Immigrants and n...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Since antiquity, from east to west, birds are represented in various artistic interpretations, such as paintings, music, poems, and sculptures. The mysticism and the romanticism associated with these animals come from, among other characteristics, their colors, songs and behaviors. Hummingbirds are classic examples of this narrative, portrayed, mos...
Data
Scientists have long been trying to understand why the Neotropical region holds the highest diversity of birds on Earth. Recently, there has been increased interest in morpho- logical variation between and within species, and in how climate, topography, and anthropogenic pressures may explain and affect phenotypic variation. Because morphological d...

Article

Many species of hummingbirds are sexually monochromatic. This is surprising because in all hummingbird species parental care is carried out by females, while males are promiscuous, and this mating system is usually associated with some form of sexual dimorphism. To study sexual selection in monochromatic species, the identification of sex is a prer...
Thesis
Full-text available
Population dynamics in hummingbirds in South America is virtually unknown and unstudied, due to difficulty in their capture in numbers for mark and recapture studies. Yet, due to species diversity, distributions, the role they play as pollinators of ephemeral resources and their colorful displays, study of their population dynamics is important for...
Article
Full-text available
Several methods are available to capture cavity-nesting birds but not all are equally easy to use. Here we propose an improved method, in which we use a modified fish basket placed over the opening to the nest using an extendible pole. When a bird enters the basket trap, the entrance to the trap is closed by pulling on a string that shuts the door...
Thesis
Full-text available
Incubation and foraging are often trade-offs that must be resolved for successful reproduction in birds. The trade-off may be important because the need for maintaining a relatively constant and high temperature for the eggs and dependent offspring may require extensive time intervals on the nest and, therefore, less time for foraging. An adaptatio...
