Landscape configuration of an Amazonian island-like ecosystem drives population structure and genetic diversity of a habitat-specialist bird
Camila did her genetic research in Field Museum's Pritzker Lab. Our lab has served as a training center for more than 300 people from 30 different countries in the last decade. We are honoured that so many terrific scientists come to work with us. Congratulations, Camila.
Context Amazonian white-sand ecosystems (campinas) are open vegetation patches which form a natural island-like system in a matrix of tropical rainforest. Due to a clear distinction from the surrounding matrix, the spatial characteristics of campina patches may affect the genetic diversity and compo...
