How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I am a PhD student and a Fulbright scholar in the Ecology program at Penn State University (USA). I've completed a Master Degree in Plant Biology and a Bachelor Degree in Biological Sciences both at Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (Brazil). My research experience and interests are plant-animal interactions, especially frugivory and seed dispersal, seed ecology and physiology, restoration and community ecology, using several statistical approaches to address eco-evolutionary questions.

To evaluate water use-related anatomical, functional and physiological traits in flowers and evolutionary consequences on pollinator attractiveness characters in Kielmeyera species in the Brazilian cerrado.
We aim to investigate ecological and evolutionary facets of plant diversity in three rocky outcrop vegetation, the campo rupestre, the canga and inselbergs. Our ultimate goals are to mainstream rocky outcrop vegetation in the scientific community agenda; and to provide support for evidence-based conservation, restoration and public policies.
