    Vitor started to study the macrofauna of Neotropical Forests during his Master in INPA Manaus . This gave him the familiarity with Blattaria and the will to learn more about the biodiversity in the neotropics.

    For his PhD we chose to focus on Monastria, a genus of cockroach endemic of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest.

  •  Theme of PhD research :

  • The contribution of collection data in inferences of species distribution : a comparison of collection versus target sampling data
    • The effect of climate change on dispersal-limited species
    • Revision of the cockroach genus Monastria and description of new species
    • A phylogenetic study of the diversification of the genus Monastria in the Brazilian Atlantic forest.

    I defended my thesis entitled"Taxonomie, Phylogéographie et Distribution du genre Monastria Saussure, 1864 (Insecta, Blattodea) dans la forêt atlantique brésilienne”
    last week.
