The Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department has been working hard and monitoring, as well as planning, for COVID-19/Coronavirus and the safety of the UCLA community. We understand that we live in very uncertain times and, with news about the virus changing frequently, we appreciate your cooperation. Please know the department is committed to working in everyone’s best interest—students, faculty, staff, and community at large.

Our Winter 2022 Seminar Series will be held in-person and virtually.  Proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the seminar is required for non-UCLA attendees.  Clearance from the UCLA Symptom monitoring website or app is required for UCLA attendees.

We appreciate your understanding at this time.

" Historical biogeography and biodiversity in the Atlantic Rainforest "

I have dedicated most of my research hours to the study of biodiversity patterns in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil. Along with a phenomenal group of students and collaborators, we have ventured into different areas of integrative biology: biodiversity mapping, macroecology, historical demography, physiology, and predictive modeling. In this talk I share some of these studies and findings, and introduce you to the work of some of the young scientists I have had the pleasure to work with, several of them Latin@s. You shall hear about frogs, lizards, butterflies, birds, bromeliads, and other beasts, and, if you ask, I might as well tell you what did not work, and how we’ve gone back to the drawing board every now and then. ​​
