  •  Background :

  • I grew up in Brazil and studied at the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, where I got a master in Ecology and a PhD in Geography. After my PhD I moved to Paris to work in this research team, where I had the opportunity of developing researches on phylogenetic, systematics and evolutionary biology. These experiences gave me the familiarity with several disciplinary fields, which is indispensable to develop my present work.

  •  Role

  • I am in charge of promoting research on macroecology. It is a transversal position in ISYEB, in which I work with different taxonomists, phylogeneticists and evolutionary biologists aiming at answering major questions about the distribution, evolution and conservation of biodiversity. My main role is to define the protocols, identify or develop the adequate methods and procedures to answer the proposed questions.
    For doing this work I often rely on data of systematic and occurrence from the Museum’s collections, and on data available in mega-databases.
    I am particular interested in the following issues :
    • contribution of phylogenetic diversity for reducing biodiversity losses in the present extinction crisis
    • assessment of the contribution and major biases of data issuing from Museum’s collections
    • identification of major biases in data collection for estimates and characterization of area of distribution and of site’s richness and endemicity.

  •  Lab News


  • - Maram will stay longer with us. She is now in post-doc, working with correlates of microendemicity and disharmony of New Caledonia’s fauna.

    - I am now working on the project « Phylogenetic and Functional Diversity of Plants in Islands ». This project is done in collaboration with Thomas Haevermans and Maud Mouchet Cesco http://cesco.mnhn.fr/user/80 funded by Labex BCDiv. Simon Veron was the post-doc selected to work on this project. Soon we will have more information about his achievements.

    I am happy to announce that the book “Phylogenetic Systematics and Biodiversity Conservation : preserving our evolutionary heritage in an extinction crisis ” is now published. An open access version is available here in the
    Springer website

    - Dan Faith from Australian Museum is in my lab until April 7th. He is an Invited Professor in a project granted by LabEx BCDiv/MNHN held by myself and Sandrine Pavoine.
    He will animate our Journal Club on the 25th and will as well to make a lecture on the Seminaire of ISYEB on the 29th .
    If you want to discuss about Phylogenetic Diversity, Functional Trait diversity, and many other questions related to Biodiversity please contact me.

    - Congratulations to the colleagues involved in the realization of The Taxonomic Catalog of the Brazilian Fauna (TCBF). Due to this enormous effort now we can find a list with more than 116 thousand species of the brazilian Fauna online.
    I am happy to participate to this endeavor as the coordinator responsible for the group Blattaria.
