Fabricio Beggiato Baccaro, PI

I recently joined the Biology Department of Amazonas Federal University as an Assistant Professor. My research focuses on understanding the structure and dynamics of ecological communities. I'm also interested in the evoutionary outcomes of mutualistic and antagonist interactions at assemblage level.

Claudio R. dos Santos Neto, PhD candidate (INPA)

Claudio studied ant richness patterns along a wide latitudinal gradient in Amazon. Now he is investigating taxonomical, functional and behavioural responses of ant assemblages facing changes in soil nutrients. His PhD thesis is being developed under the Amazon Fertilisation Experiment - AFEX, near Manaus. He is co-advised by Dr. Beto Quesada.

Isabela Freitas Oliveira, PhD candidate (INPA)

Isabela interest in butterflies began in 2011 and since then she worked in different Brazilian biomes, including Cerrado, Atlantic Forest, Caatinga and Amazon. During her master's degree in Ecology at UFRN, she investigated the structure of fruit-feeding butterflies assemblages in an urban landscape. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate at INPA. Her project is focused on phylogeography, morphological traits and the diversification of widely distributed butterflies, as well as on ecological process, as how the flood pulse of the Amazonian rivers influence the structuring of butterfly communities. She is co-advised by Dra. Fernanda Werneck.

Janderson Alencar, PhD candidate (INPA)

Janderson is currently working with distribution and diversity of hygropetric beetles (Insecta: Coleoptera) along spatial gradients in the Espinhaço Mountains in Brazil. He is advised by Dra. Neuza Hamada.

Amanda da Silva de Oliveira, PhD candidate (UFAM)

 Amanda got her Master degree in Ecology at Universidade Federal do Acre. She studied ant assemblage diversity at Brazilian nut (Bertholletia excelsa) canopy trees growing in forests and pastures. Now she focused on biogeography and evolution of ant assemblages in white sand forests in Amazonian forests. She is co-advised by Dr. Sergio Borges.

Talitha Ferreira dos Santos, PhD candidate (UFAM)

Talitha is studying ant-plant interactions between flooding and terra-firme forests. She is particularly interested in understand how the interaction strength varies between mutualist and non-mutualist ant-plant networks. She is co-advised by Dr. Thiago Izzo.

Gilson de Souza Ferreira Neto, PhD candidate (INPA)

Gilson in investigating how primary productivity and landscape characteristics affect mammalian richness and ecosystem functioning. Most part of his work take place on river islands at Anavilhanas National Park. Gilson is looking from different facets, from riverine people to the conservation unit managers, to build a broader view of fluvial islands ecosystem functioning. He is co-advised by Dra. Maíra Benchimol.

Diego Rodrigues Guilherme, PhD candidate (INPA)

Diego seek to understand how ant functional diversity is shaped by evolution and environmental variation. Using a large data set covering a wide environmental variation in Amazon forests couple with experiments he aim to measure the fitness of some functional traits and also model the functional and phylogenetic diversity of ant assemblages along the amazon basin. He is co-advised by Dr. Pedro Pequeno.

Ana Cristina Utta, PhD candidate (INPA)

Cris interested in ant functional assemblages correlates related to forest fragmentation and land conversion. Her PhD project aim to understand the role of matrix in ant assemblage structure, from ground-dwelling to canopy species. She is co-advised by Dr. Ricardo Solar.

Carolina Veronese Corrêa da Silva, MSc candidate (INPA)

Carolina graduated in biological sciences from UFRGS, where she evaluated the effect of fire on ant-plant interaction networks in the Pampa biome. She is currently studying how ant functional traits are related to dispersal in a seasonally flooded environment at Anavilhanas archipelago.

Gabriele Conceição Bernardo, MSc candidate (INPA)

Gabriele studies how evolution and local climate shape small mammals assemblage structure in Amazon basin. She is advised by Dr. Rafael Leite.

Anelise Montanarin, MSc candidate (INPA)

Anelise studies habitat use of jaguars (Panthera onca) in seasonally flooded forests at Mamirauá. Using a large data set she is able to investigate possible preferences related to sex. She is advised by Dr. William Magnusson.

Karina Silva de Aquino, MSc candidate (UFAM)

Karina is interested in general insect taxonomic patterns (order and family level) in fragmented environments. Her main is understand how fragmentation and predation by bats shape local assemblage of fly insects. She is advised by Dr. Sergio Borges.

Karoline Cruz de Menezes, undergraduate

Karol is a undergrad student of Biology at UFAM. She investigates several different plant lineages to understand the role of secondary compounds on the dynamics of leaf hebivory.

Nicolle Vasconcelos da Costa, undergraduate

Nicolle is a undergrad Biology student at UFAM. She investigates the ant diversity in urban parks and squares in Manaus, and how it is related with vegetation structure and non-native plant species.

Lilian Caroline Nunes de Matos, undergraduate

Lilian is a undergrad Biology student at IFAM. She investigates the ant functional traits correlates related with seed dispersion.

Erica Marinho do Vale, undergraduate

Erica is a undergrad Biology student at UFAM. She is interested in ant acoustic and communication. Instagram.
