Márcio Araújo

I am a biologist with a PhD in Ecology and I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Ecology at the São Paulo State University at Rio Claro, Brazil. During graduate school, I became interested in how individuals within natural populations vary in their ecological attributes and since then have been investigating the mechanisms that maintain this variation and how it impacts ecological interactions and the evolution of populations. More recently, I became interested in how environmental gradients (e.g. salinity, predation) affect the evolution of life history and functional morphology in natural populations of fishes.
