Milene Alves-Eigenheer

Bachelor in Ecology (UNESP) and Master in Botany (UNESP), I am a PhD candidate in Ecology and Biodiversity (UNESP) interested in understand the role of the movement of a seed dispersor (Ramphastos toco) in a fragmented landscape.


Movement ecology, seed dispersal and landscape use by Ramphastos toco – under the advice of Milton Ribeiro. On this moment I’m living in Netherlands, developing a meta-analysis about movement of seed dispersers under the advice of Frank van Langevelde, in Wageningen University. This is part of the project "New sampling methods and statistical tools for biodiversity research: integrating animal movement ecology with population and community ecology".

Grants and Funding:

I received my “sandwich PhD” grant from CAPES (99999.002675/2014-05) and part of my study is funded by FAPESP (process 2013/50421-2).
