Gonçalo Curveira-Santos is a Ph.D. student in the frame of the BIODIV Doctoral Program (Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution) (2016-2020) at the Faculty of Science, University of Lisbon, and he is part of the Conservation Ecology Group of cE3c. His main research field is the conservation ecology of mammals, with a focus on carnivore spatial ecology and the development of local and broad-scale approaches to carnivore conservation. He is particularly interested in the ecological strategies involved in carnivore adaptation to human-dominated landscapes. Ultimately, he aims to contribute to the development of integrative management approaches in a conservation context by investigating the correspondence between the spatial unit and its functional role, linking patterns to processes.
