University of Minas
I have a degree in Biological Sciences (Universität Hohenheim) and a doctorate in Natural Sciences - Biology (Universität Tübingen, Germany). I am an Associate Professor at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Department of Botany, I coordinate the research group: Plebeia - Bee Ecology and Pollination and I am a member of the Graduate Programs in Plant Biology (UFMG), Zoology (UFMG) and Ecology , Conservation and Wildlife Management (UFMG). I develop research on pollination ecology and associated issues. Research topics: specialized pollination systems; oligoletia; pollination by bees, sphingids and beetles; pollination of Araceae; nocturnal / crepuscular bees and their relationships with flowers; plant communities and anthropic insects; behavior of solitary bees; reproductive biology of plants and pollinators; palynology; chemical communication plant-pollinator.
Ecology of pollination, Bee Interaction - Plant, Ecology and Systematics of Bees, Systematics and Ecology of Antinophilic Insects, Community of bees and plants, Applied Palynology, Biology of Pollination.
