The LECoV has Fernanda Michalski and Darren Norris as founders and principal investigators. For the past years we have received and supervised several students from different academic levels (see current and former students). We also have a team of trained local field assistants and technicians that give support to our activities.
Darren is a biologist with experience in studies with vertebrates in tropical forests. He worked with reindeer in the Arctic and primates and other mammals in Africa and the Brazilian Amazon. Currently, he is a lecturer at the Federal University of Amapá and is supervising MSc and PhD students. He is conducting studies investigating the role of mammals in catalizing the restoration of degraded areas close to hyperdiverse tropical forests. He is also helping our group with data management and analysis.
