Paulo Oliveira is Professor of Ecology at the State University of Campinas (Unicamp), Brazil. He completed a BSc in Ecology at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) anda PhD in BIology at Unicamp. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard and the University of Würzburg. Paulo Oliveira’s research is on the natural history, ecology and behavior of tropical ants, with a focus on ant-plant-herbivore interactions. By frequently foraging on the plant surface, ants have a major effect on shaping the life of herbivores. Paulo has published over 100 scientific papers on these questions. He has also co-autored 11 book chapters and three books on the Ecology and Evolution of Ant-Plant Interactions.
