Alexandre Salino


Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil

I am Professor of Plant Systematics at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais. I study the taxonomy and systematics of ferns and lycophytes of the Neotropics. I have a special interest in using phylogeny and biogeography as tools to recover the evolutionary history of ferns. I have been the Curator of the Herbarium BHCB (UFMG) since 2004. I have seved as Associate Editor for Acta Botanica Brasilica since 2010. I love to travel in general, but especially to know different types of vegetation in mountainous regions and, of course, to collect ferns.
