Principal Researcher

Rosane G Collevatti

Rosane G Collevatti is an evolutionary geneticist and professor at the Universidade Federal de Goias, Brazil. She has PhD in Ecology from the University of Brasilia. Prof. Collevatti focuses her research on population genetics of Neotropical trees, with particular emphasis on geographical patterns in neutral, quantitative and adaptative variation in Cerrado tree species.

associated researchers and co-Workers

Dra. Chritine D. Bacon

PVE/CNPq Fellowship

Christine D Bacon is an evolutionary biologist and Assistant Professor at University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Christine’s main interest is in the use of molecular phylogenies as a tool to study evolutionary and biogeographical patterns in time and space. She integrates phylogenies with ecological and geological information to understand biodiversity and diversification in tropical regions. She primarily works on palms (Arecaceae), but also actively works on Celastraceae plants in Madagascar and South America.

Dra. Juliana S Santos

PDJ/CAPES Fellowship

Juliana Santos is a Ph.D. in Remote Sensing (National Institute for Space Research – INPE) with the background in the monitoring of the dynamics of land use, spatial analyses, GIS, and landscape ecology metrics. Currently, she is a postdoc at Collevatti Lab in the long-term ecological research project – PELD Silvânia – at Federal University of Goiás. She is particularly interested in ecological issues associated with ecological corridors modeling, and the quality of agricultural landscapes.
