Alexandre Antonelli, Ph.D
I am an evolutionary biologist with practical and theoretical experience ranging from fieldwork in the tropics to molecular-based laboratory and analytical techniques. My research has focused on the origins and evolution of tropical America’s outstanding biodiversity. I am becoming increasingly interested in evaluating how past responses to climate changes may improve our predictions of species losses under Global warming, and how this knowledge can be used for conservation. I am more interested in compelling research questions than particular organism groups – animals, plants or fungi.

Ana Lúcia da Costa Prudente, Ph.D
I am a researcher and professor at Post-Graduation Program in Zoology at Museu Paraense Emílio Goeldi and Federal University of Pará. I have studied Amazonian snakes for more than 15 year and my interest is in systematics.

Breno Hamdan, Msc
I became a biologist by Federal University of Bahia, and I obtained my master degree in Biological Sciences at National Museum of Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Additionally, I am a post-graduate student in Environment at COPPE/UFRJ and PhD student in Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. The theme of my thesis is “Conservation genetics and evolutionary history of populations of islands and continental of Bothrops leucurus Wagler, 1864” (my advisor is Dr. Carlos Guerra). I am an expert in zoology with emphasis in Herpetology. Currently I am also the curator of herpetological and tissue collection of Vital Brazil Institute.

Cristiano Nogueira, Ph.D
My major research topics are biogeography and conservation. Local faunas and natural settings have led me to discover broader patterns of biodiversity, including determinants of rarity and biological singularity in rich, poorly studied and imperiled Neotropical faunas.

Fausto Barbo, Ph.D
Currently, I am a post-doctoral student at the Museum of Zoology of the University of São Paulo. I have been studying aspects of the morphology of the Bothrops jararaca species complex aiming to clarify issues about taxonomy and systematics. I am interested in snakes from the Neotropical region, with emphasis in biogeography, geographical distribution, systematics, and taxonomy.

Otavio Augusto V. Marques, Ph.D
My research is focused in natural history of Neotropical snakes. I have worked in many topics including habitat use, diet and feeding behavior, reproduction and defensive tactics in ecological and evolutionary context. I am also interested in identifying snakes, and eventually, I have published taxonomic studies. Additionally, I have collaborated in activities related to science communication and science education developed by the Butantan Institute.

Ricardo J. Sawaya, Ph.D
I am interested in biogeography, ecology, evolution, and conservation. I've been working mainly with reptiles and amphibians to explore questions on the evolution of geographic distributions in both local and regional scales, related to ecophylogenetics and process-based biogeography.
