Lucas Pereira Martins
"I am an ecologist broadly interested in species diversity and interactions. My research mostly examines the effects of environmental changes on ecological networks, and how this reflects on ecosystem functioning."
Primary Supervisor: Jason Tylianakis
My research interests include:
- Ecological networks
- Species interactions
- Ecological modelling
- Seed dispersal
Working thesis titleMacroecological patterns in plant-frugivore networks.
