Project at a glance

We are conducting several research lines in animal evolution using molecular tools, from species formation and biogeography to evolutionary genomics and organismal adaptation.

The four main projects are:

  1. biodiversity in the neotropics,
  2. evolutionary genomics and adaptation,
  3. biogeography of South American mammals,
  4. biodiversity loss by interspecific hybridization.
