Freshwater fish Hybridization Polyploidy Species distribution models Time series Population genetics

I am conducting a Ph.D. in Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution (BIODIV) by the University of Lisbon starting in 2014 within Conservation in Socio-Ecological Ecosystems and Evolutionary Genetics groups of cE3c. I am conducting the project “How do allopolyploid vertebrate complexes spatially structure their populations? The case-study of the Iberian fish Squalius alburnoides”, under the supervision of professor Filomena Magalhães (Stream Fish Ecology sub-group) and professor Maria João Collares-Pereira (Evolutionary Genetics group).  My Ph.D. project aims are: to evaluate the joint dynamics of the hybrid S. alburnoides and the bisexual species Squalius carolitertii; to measure responses of S. alburnoides to environmental factors; and to determine genomotypic and genetic structure. This study is being conducted in the frame of SABOR-LTER, using results as baselines for further testing hypothesis on the dynamics of the complex under increasing habitat fragmentation and altered climates, requiring long time series of ecological data.
