Cleber Cunha Figueredo


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

I am currently Professor of Cryptogamae Taxonomy at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais. As a researcher, my interests have focused on the physiology of algae and aspects of the community ecology of phytoplankton. I have served as Assistant Editor for Acta since February 2015. In addition to my interests in botany, I enjoy observing all kinds of interactions among species of different taxonomic groups, but I particularly love bird behavior. I like to play sports and enjoy the opportunities it provides to meet and socialize with different people, including those with other professional interests.
