Conservation Biology Niche/Species Distribution Models Risk of extinction


I'm a Conservation Biologist from Brazil who has a great passion for large mammals. I'm concerned in assess their conservation status, especially in the Neotropical region. At the moment I am a post-doctoral researcher at Duke University, where my studies are concerned with conservation of tapirs in the Brazilian Atlancti Forest. I am also a researcher from Pró-Tapir Program (monitoring the tapirs from the Atlantic Forest in the state of Espírito Santo, Brazil), and a researcher collaborator of the Laboratory of Conservation Biology of Vertebrates headed by Dr. Lucena Mendes, at UFES, Brazil. I've got my Doctor degree in Animal Biology in 2013 at Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo (UFES), in Brazil. During my PhD, I went to Duke University as a visitor scholar at the Dr. Stuart Pimm laboratory.
