Andressa Cabral

Doctoral Researcher

Scientific profile

 

I am a botanist interested in evolutionary biology, biogeography and systematics. Since the bachelor's degree, I’ve been working with floritics and conservation in the eastern Brazilian mountains. My master’s thesis was focused in systematics, biogeography, morphological diversity and phylogenetic relationships in Barbacenia (Velloziaceae), a disjunct lineage in the Brazilian rock outcrops, mainly campo rupestre and Atlantic Forest inselbergs. During my PhD at iDiv, I’m studying the mutualistic interactions between fleshy-fruited plants and frugivores in the tropical rainforests. We aim to understand the impact of frugivory-related plant and disperser trait origin and extinction on the macroecology and macroevolution of fruit-frugivore trait matching.
