Activity summary

My major research is on southern African freshwater fishes following three main objectives: i) contributing to the taxonomy and systematics of freshwater fishes (morphologic and phylogenetic approaches); ii) defining phylogeography and historical biogeography of southern African freshwater fishes species; and iii) understanding and defining aquatic biodiversity processes for conservation purposes. Currently, I am involved in the CoastNet Project (Portuguese Coastal Monitoring Network).
