João Tiago Marques is a PhD student in Biology at the University of Lisbon, under the supervision of Jorge Palmeirim. He works on a diversity of topics in batecology and his dissertation focuses the determinants of the structure of Amazonian bat assemblages. In particular, he is investigating the contribution of horizontal environmental heterogeneity for species richness of fruit eating bats, and how insect eating bats forage across the vertical strata of Amazonian forests.
