Universidade Federal Rural do Rio de Janeiro, Seropédica, RJ, Brazil

I am Professor of Conservation and Restoration Ecology at the Universidade Federal Rural do Rio de Janeiro (UFRRJ). I have Ph.D. in Botany – Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro. My research interest comprises ecological restoration, functional traits, and forest succession models. Our research group (Laboratório de Ecologia Aplicada – LEAp) has been developing studies about ecological filters, the role of past land use on natural regeneration, and effects of biodiversity on ecosystem functioning.
