André Pinto da Silva
Main Research Interests
My research interests are focused on the conservation of threatened species and populations of mammals, with special emphasis on carnivores. Delineation of conservation strategies at broad and local scale under climate change will be the main line of my research during forthcoming years. Conservation ecology and genetics are the current fields of research.
