Yasmine Antonini

I am a full professor in Ecology, teaching ecology courses and leading the Biodiversity Lab in the Department of Biology of Federal University of Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais, Brazil. I earned my Ph.D. in Conservation Ecology at the Federal University of Minas Gerais. I have published refereed articles and scientific chapters in books, mainly focusing on tropical ecology (community ecology in general) and plant-animal interactions such as pollination. My field work focuses on tropical forest ecosystems in Brazil, specifically the Atlantic Forest and Cerrado. I am also interested in ecological restoration, focusing on the role of biodiversity and ecological processes.

In tropical forests, several reforestation programs have been created to recover biological diversity in deforested environments. However, most of these studies have focused on the loss of species and ignored the loss of ecological interactions… Read more
