Current Positions


Research Interests

I use field experiments, long-term demographic studies, and simple mathematical models to study how habitat fragmentation and other anthropogenic landscape alterations influence plant-animal interactions and plant population dynamics. I conduct most of my research in South America’s two largest biomes: the Amazon and the Cerrado. In Amazonia I am working at the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments Project, which is co-administered by Brazil’s Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas da Amazonia and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. My Cerrado fieldwork is conducted at Panga Ecological Station, a field station of the Universidade Federal de Uberlandia in Minas Gerais. A complete description of my labs ongoing research can be found here: Bruna Lab Projects.
