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.
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.
