What is the problem with monocultures? I investigate how exotic forest plantations affect species diversity compared to native plantations and natural habitats in a long-term (+60 yrs) experiment.

Masters Student

Samia Letícia

Investigates how life-history traits, such as those associated with ontogeny, metamorphosis, determine species diversity. One of the questions in my study is: can metamorphosis in frogs reduce competition and allow more species to coexist in a community?
