Nadia de Moraes-Barros graduated in Biological Sciences from University of São Paulo (USP - Brazil). In 2003, she concluded her Ph.D. in Genetics and Evolutionary Biology at the Institute of Biosciences (IB-USP) where she started to work in phylogeography and population genetics of sloths in a collaborative work with the Department of Parks and Forested Areas - The City of São Paulo Secretary of Environment. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Laboratory of Evolutionary Biology and Vertebrate Conservation (Labec, IB-USP). Her research encompasses phylogeography, population genetics, phylogeny, and comparative morphological analyses of different species, including sloths. The main goal of these studies is to understand how demographic fluctuations and evolutionary processes, such as selection, are related to species diversification, and in which way intraspecific subdivisions depicted from neutral markers contribute to delineating targets for conservation purposes.
