Main Research Topic:
Population genetics and evolution of neotropical birds, especially those with populations on islands. Trying to conserve what is left!
• Birds are important to me because:
They are not only pretty but very important for the ecosystem, some plants won’t germinate without passing through their gut. Plus, is a good way of interacting with people that are not biologists, many of them have bird feeders just to see the pretty birds.
