    Research

    My research interests are very broad: niche ecology, metabolic theory, population and community dynamics, landscape ecology, tropical biology, macroecology, macroevolution, biogeography and conservation. I am particularly interested in synthesizing all these fields through the investigation of biodiversity dynamics across scales and ecological levels, from populations and species ranges to biogeographical scale dynamics of plant species (Cabral & Schurr 2010; Cabral & Kreft 2012; Cabral et al. 2015; Cabral et al. 2017 Ecography) and communities (Cabral & Kreft 2012; Petter et al. 2015). In my research, I have investigated not only current local population and metapopulation dynamics (Cabral & Schurr 2010), but also the impact of land use and climate change (Sarmento Cabral et al. 2013) and of exploitation (Cabral et al. 2011) at the landscape and regional scales. Moreover, I have an interdisciplinary research profile, working with plant genetics and chromosome evolution (Cabral et al. 2006; Koehler et al. 2008; de Oliveira et al. 2015), macroecology (Cabral et al. 2014; Weigelt et al. 2016; Keil et al. 2017) and trait-based community analyses (Petter et al. 2015). My field experiences entail hitherto Tropical Forests in Brazil and Panama as well as Mediterrenan-like Vegetation in south Africa (e.g. Cabral & Schurr 2010; Cabral et al. 2015; Petter et al. 2015).
