My research interests:

My research interests are related to the effects of anthropogenic habitat disturbance (fragmentation, degradation, and transformation) on native species and plant-animal interactions, focused on its ecological and evolutionary consequences. My current research line aims to assess habitat degradation (e.g., selective logging) and transformation (e.g., exotic-tree plantations) effects as anthropogenic selection forces, acting on pollination, frugivory and seed dispersal interactions.
