Marina Corrêa Scalon


Universidade Federal do Paraná, Curitiba, PR, Brazil

My main research interest is to understand how species adapt to changes in the environment from a functional and ecophysiological perspective. I am particularly interested in studying the mechanisms by which plants display different ecological strategies to respond to environmental changes, especially in the Neotropics. I am currently a Postdoctoral fellow at the Universidade Federal do Paraná, and a collaborator at University of Oxford and Universidade do Estado de Mato Grosso. I am also a mother of two girls, who are discovering a whole new world through their eyes.
