Principal Investigator

Gabriela Bielefeld Nardoto is the principal investigator of EIS. She finished her doctoral thesis in 2005 in Applied Ecology at the University of São Paulo. Since 2010 she got a position as Professor in the Biological Sciences Institute at the University of Brasília. Since 2018 she has a level 2 research fellowship from the CNPq.

POSTDOC

I'm a Ph.D. in ecology and work primarily with ornithology, bioacoustics, and animal behavior. My postdoctoral research aims to build a Hydrogen Isoscape for Brazil. The isoscape will be constructed based on bird feathers hydrogen signatures and will help to assign origin location for trafficked animals and migrant birds.

I'm a Ph.D. in ecology, working primarily with mastozoology. In collaboration with Dr. Gabriela Nardoto, I am using carbon and nitrogen stable isotopes as a tool to assess the trophic niche of small mammals communities at Cerrado biome.

DOCTORAL

My doctoral research focuses on the evolution of monogamy of one Neotropical bird, Stripe-tailed yellow finch (Sicalis citrina), and their migration. I am using stable isotopes as a tool to identify the main source of carotenoid pigments and the relationship between body condition, carbon, and nitrogen stable isotopes, carotenoid concentration, and phenotype quality.

I have been working with carbon stock in the soil, using satellite imagery and generating pedotransfer functions in the Neotropical savannas. In my doctoral dissertation, I am looking to link soil carbon and nitrogen stable isotopes with a geographic climate gradient in Brazil.

DOCTORAL

STUDENT

My doctoral research deals with the integration of remote sensing and geoprocessing methods with isotopic ecology. My research aims to elaborate soil and plant δ13C isoscapes for the Brazilian Neotropical Savanna. The results of this research may also help further studies within the applied isotopic ecology, such as those related to species migration, eating habits and forensic science.

DOCTORAL

STUDENT

My research is focused on understanding how land use changes and eutrophication compromise soil communities and ecological interactions in Neotropical savannas. In this context, stable isotopes analysis is an important tool to access soil species niche and evaluate resource-consumer interactions in both natural and modified landscapes.

DOCTORAL

STUDENT

My doctoral research focuses on the land use impacts on wetland biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in the Araguaia floodplain using a top predator, the Spectacled caiman (Caiman crocodilus), as an indicator and surrogate species. I will assess the relationships between suitable landscape features and indicators of demographic status (trophic niche, body condition, abundance).

My master's research focuses on understanding the functioning of coastal ecosystems with different water regimes by using carbon and nitrogen stable isotopes in the deposited sediment.
