Collaboration from a PhD in Applied Ecology

During May, Glaucia, Vandir, and Thayane received Dr. Vivian Ribeiro Baptista-Maria, a biologist and PhD in Applied Ecology from ESALQ/Universidade de São Paulo, accompanied by Daniela Masumoto, a BS in Tourism. During the field trip, Dr. Vivian helped us to identify the plant species consumed by the parrots or used as nest cavity. Dr. Vivian is consultant of Fundação Neotrópica do Brasil and is responsible for the environmental consulting Bíon – Consultoria Ambiental ( Two days (and nights!) of hard work, rain, sun, mosquitoes, and ticks. Dr. Vivian’s voluntary collaboration was fundamental for this part of the project, when the data of 11 years of project are being analyzed for results compilation and publishing.vivivan-e-daniela-especies-vegetais-do-pantanal_800x600.JPGVivian and Daniela identifying plant species.vandir-glaucia-e-vivian-identificando-as-arvores-no-pantanal.JPGVandir, Glaucia and Vivian checking the trees.vivian-consultando-os-livros.JPGVivian checking the books.We deeply appreciate her collaboration, as well as Daniela’s help on the field work.
