Patrícia Morellato  


I am a Plant Ecologist and since early in my career I have been interested in the time of natural phenomena and plant animal-interactions. My main research focus is on plant phenology and seasonal changes of natural and disturbed vegetations. I have started investigating the drivers for seasonal patterns of forest growth and reproduction, and reproductive phenology and its relation to pollination and seed dispersal. The focus has widen up for the influence of phylogeny on phenology, fragmentation and edge effects on phenology and mutualistic interactions, inter and intraspecific variations in plant phenology, and methods of phenological research. More recently, the research has focused on the interaction of space and time, and the problems of scales for ecology targeting phenology. We begin then the e-phenology project, a multidisciplinary project in e-science combining research in Ecology and Computer Science and now Remote Sensing. We have applied new technologies to investigate phenology using digital cameras and repeated photography, and drones (or UAVs unmanned aerial vehicles) and are scaling up incorporating the regional approach of land surface phenology. I have also studied the effects of environmental and climatic changes on plant phenology and I have participated as a contributing author in the Working Group II (WGII) of the fourth IPCC report, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize 2007. I enjoy working on books and reviews, traveling and visit different cultures and ecosystems and get together with family and friends, students and collaborators in Brazil and around the world.

Analysis of Flowering Patterns .


I am an ecologist interested in untangling the environmental drivers of plant community assembly and phenological patterns. During my PhD I studied the effects of fire frequency and soil features on the functional diversity of cerrado plant species. My current research involves gathering long-term flowering phenology time series from herbarium species using computational methods. These time series are then used both to determine the climatic cues that trigger flowering and to search for evidence of shifting in flowering times due to climate change. I have a strong interest in developing algorithms to solve problems in various fields of ecology, especially when working with large datasets of plant species. All my R packages can be found on my github page.

    Plant Phenology.


    I graduated in Ecology at the Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP) and developed my post-graduation at the Phenology Lab. I am interested in plant phenology, mainly in reproductive patterns of tropical seasonal vegetation and plant-animal interactions. During my master degree, I analyzed patterns of fruit production in a woody cerrado (Brazilian savanna) community, trying to verify climatic drivers, reproductive strategies according to the seed dispersal vectors, and fleshy fruits availability. In my PhD thesis, I focused on fleshy fruits, dispersed by animals, and described temporal patterns of fruit production according to fruit traits, with emphasis in fruit color and contrast against the leaves background according to birds’ visual systems. Currently, I am a post-doc researcher, studying spatio-temporal patterns of color diversity in a rupestrian grassland community according to pollinators’ visual systems. My main interest is to investigate color patterns in plant communities and its relation to animals’ visual systems, trying to figure out the role of colors on plant-animal visual communication and plant-animal interactions.

    Origin, Maintenance and Conservation of Biodiversity.


    I have a broad interest in the origin, maintenance and conservation of biodiversity. As well, I have studied ecology of plants, and most of my work focuses on Myrtaceae family (e.g. guajava, myrtle). I am also interested on taxonomy and systematics of Myrtales, evolution of large genera and plant diversity patterns. My current investigation as post-doctoral researcher in the Laboratório de Fenologia is developed in collaboration with Dr. Patrícia Morellato and Dr. Eve Lucas (Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, UK). We are combining ecological niche modelling, phylogenetic methods and flowering patterns to build predictions about the future of Atlantic forest (Project title: Phenologies and phylogenies as tools to understand the effects of climate changes in the tropics, FAPESP #2014/13899-4, #2016/02312-8). I also collaborate in the Programa de Pós Graduação em Biologia Vegetal with a course “Eco-phylogenetics in plants: integrating phylogenies into ecological hypothesis” (45h; each May, every other year).

    Leaf Phenology Patterns.


    I am a PhD candidate in Ecology and Biodiversity in the Laboratório de Fenologia (UNESP). My main interest of research is leaf phenology patterns in tropical seasonal communities. I have been working with my supervisor, Patricia Morellato, since my Master degree, where we started to introduce a new tool for monitoring phenology in the tropics. We have been developing the e-Phenology network, which counted with the installation of digital cameras (phenocams) for monitoring phenology in several vegetation sites in Brazil. During my master, I had setup a phenocam monitoring system in a cerrado vegetation in Southeasten Brazil and, for the first time, we proved the reliability of this new tool for phenology monitoring in a tropical seasonal vegetation. Currently, in my PhD project, I am investigating leaf phenology of different vegetation sites along a gradient of rainfall distribution and trying to better understand the relationship between phenology and abiotic factors, as well as the links with ecosystem process by studing carbon fluxes. Main collaborators of my ongoing research: Professor Ricardo Torres, from University of Campinas, Sao Paulo State; and Professor Andrew Richardson, from Harvard University, US.

    Pollination Syndromes.


    I’m an undergraduate student towards the Biological Sciences course at the Universidade Estadual Paulista Julio de Mesquita Filho (UNESP), located in Rio Claro. I’ve just joined the Fenology Lab to develop my Undergraduate Thesis about pollination syndromes with the Campo Rupestre plant species. The idea is to investigate how and if the pollinators change along the altitudinal gradient and how the diverse landscapes, present at the area, affect their presence. At the same time, I’m doing the Internship Program at the Enviromental Analisis and Planning Center (CEAPLA) where I have the access of the raining and temperature data of Rio Claro. These information are supposed to be related to the Campus Fenology where marked individuals of different plant species are observed every week over the past 10 years. The relation between climatological and fenological data are supposed to indicate mainly reproductive behaviour of the species observed.

    Organisms and Ecological Interactions.


    I am an Ecologist intrigued in understanding how organisms and ecological interactions respond to global change, and using this knowledge to forecast future changes of ecosystems due to human impacts. This is an ambitious and long-term career program that started during my PhD research at the University of Granada, Spain (finished in 2008). In this time, I studied how different land uses affected forest regeneration in Mediterranean mountains. I analyzed all the early phases of the life cycle of woody species (from seed to sapling) with the aim of understanding the recruitment limitations of the study community and the role of interactions with animals in the transitions between phases.
    From all the ecological interactions, seed dispersal has always kept my interest given the deep consequences that it has for biodiversity, spatial distribution, and community dynamics. This led me to start asking about plant phenology, as the availability of resources (i.e. fruit) is critical for understanding dispersal patterns. Since 2009, I have focused on the study of tropical plant phenology and the influence of climate on plant reproduction, and developed this topic during my postdoc researches at the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle (France) and the Universidade Estadual Paulista (Brazil).
    My current project funded by FAPESP at the Phenology Lab of the UNESP (finishing on 31/03/2017) aims to discern the climatic cues affecting fruiting phenological patterns across the Neotropics, combining a bibliographic review with updated statistical techniques. You can find more information here.

    Climate Changes Effects on Trees.


    I have been working at Laboratório de Fenologia, under Dra. Patrícia Morellato supervision, since the beginning of my undergraduate in Ecology at Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP), when I developed a project focusing on the effects of deforestation and edge effects on tropical forests phenology. In my master degree, I evaluated the influence of climate variables on the phenological pattern of two different species in a Cerrado fragment, aiming to correlate it with their growth rings widths as well as the carbon and oxygen stable isotopes pattern. At the end of my master, I developed a research internship at University of Leeds - UK, which aimed to correlate the pattern of high-resolution stable isotopes with the phenological pattern for both species.
    Currently, I am a PhD candidate at James Cook University, Australia. My aim now is to analyze the effects of CO2 increase on the phenology, tree-rings and stable isotopes patterns from tropical forests species, focusing on a better understanding of the climate changes effects on trees.

    Plant Community Assembly Rules.


    My research aims to understand plant community assembly rules, to measure impacts of anthropogenic disturbances on vegetation, to assess and understand resilience of grassland ecosystems and to test different types of restoration actions. I focused my research on mountain and tropical grasslands. My work is theoretical but first of all applied to the conservation and restoration of habitats degraded by human actions.
    At first I was interested in marine biology, I later focused on plant biology. Since 2007, I have been working on community ecology and restoration ecology with a special focus on tropical grasslands, first for my M.Sc, then for my Ph.D and my post-doc research projects. I graduated and did my MSc in Ecology in France. I did my PhD in 2012 in Ecology, with a special focus on community ecology and restoration ecology, at both the University of Avignon and Pays du Vaucluse - Avignon, France, and the Federal University of Minas Gerais - Belo Horizonte, Brazil, about “Composition, phenology and restoration of campo rupestre mountain grasslands, Brazil”.
    I followed my career at the Biodiversity and Landscape Unit, at Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech (University of Liege) for three years (2013 and 2015), addressing my research on the understanding of the functioning of copper-cobalt outcrops, their conservation and their restoration in Katanga (Democratic Republic of Congo).
    I carried out a six-month post-doc (2016), at the Phenology Lab, Sao Paulo State University, UNESP (Rio Claro, SP, Brazil) where I addressed my research on grassland phenology and on how phenology can enhance ecological restoration.
    My new post-doctoral research project (FAPESP fellowship – beginning: Nov. 2016) at Sao Paulo State University, UNESP (Rio Claro, SP, Brazil), aims to understand better the contribution of the belowground plant traits and belowground storage organs on the functioning of tropical old-growth grasslands (campo umido, campo sujo and campo rupestre), with an emphasis on carbon cycling and to assess in which extent these traits vary according to different fire history. As old-growth grassalnds are poorly resilient and complicated to restore, we want to understand the role of underground system in the resilience of such tropical ecosystems. We also want to demonstrate that old-growth grasslands represent an incredible value in term of biodiversity but also of carbon storage, in order to improve their conservation.

    Plant Communities and Populations.


    My research has been conducted mainly in tropical areas (South America and Africa) but also in the Mediterranean environment (Mediterranean Steppe). On these ecosystems, I have strived to understand the effects of disturbances (e.g. fire & grazing) on plant communities and populations, and use this information to propose and evaluate protocols for restoring degraded plant communities. On a theoretical level, I am interested in understanding the different processes that determine the assembly rules of plant communities. My fundamental questions in ecology deal with the role of stochastic, abiotic and biotic filters through which species attempting pass in order to become established in the community.
    From my PhD, my research has been focus on fire ecology and vegetation dynamic, working mainly in tropical savannas. My PhD project focused on the problem of bush fire and its impact on the savannas and woodland and afforested vegetation in a newly protected area in the highlands of Madagascar. My research helped understand the adaptability of savanna-woodland systems to the spatial and temporal variation of bush fires. I evaluated fire effects on vegetation by studying major biological processes such as reproductive phenology, germination, seedling resistance and resilience to fire.
    During my postdoctoral experience, I started to use a remote sensing approach as a complementary tool of the in situ data collection, to modeling the fire dynamic to characterize and monitor landscape changes, structure, ecosystem processes and recovery in tropical savannas in Brazil. More recently, I am using a range of approaches including modeling, remote sensing, and field sampling, and my current activities and research interests include inter-continental and global comparisons of fire on savanna and their impact in the structure and function on this vegetation type. I’m working towards developing a global theory of drivers of fire in a gradient from dry to wet savannas and a statistical description of fire regimes across continents.

    Dinâmica espaço-temporal da paisagem.


    I am an Assistant Professor at the Geography Department of the São Paulo State University (UNESP), Rio Claro campus, in São Paulo, Brazil. My research focuses on the synergistic use of remote sensing, GIS, in situ data collection and modeling techniques to characterize and monitor landscape structure, ecosystem processes and land cover/ land use change (LCLUC) in tropical wetlands.
    I am particularly interested in quantifying how climate change and human activities can affect the distribution, structure and diversity of wetland vegetation, and the possible impacts of these changes on primary productivity, biogeochemical cycling, habitat integrity and natural resource availability. Wetlands comprise a significant portion of tropical land cover, housing complex ecological systems that provide exclusive environmental services and play a key role in the regional and global carbon cycles. Wetland environments in the tropics have a long history of human occupation and resource exploitation, but the extent of anthropogenic and environmental change impacts on these environments is poorly understood in comparison to terrestrial tropical ecosystems.
