Dra. Lilian Manica is an ex-student of the Laboratory of Animal Behavior, and right after finishing her Ph.D. she became a professor and researcher at the Universidade Federal do Paraná. She keeps collaborating with our Lab, specially in research focused on reproductive behavior, mating systems and bird ornamentation.

Dr. Jeff Graves colaborates with our team in studies that require parental analyses. He was until recently the Director of the Molecular Ecology Laboratory of the University of St. Andrews and is now retired. His participation has been specifically oriented towards genetic analyses in studies about the social system of Guira Cuckoo and the mating system of Tiziu. Several students have been hosted by his lab.

Dr. Michael Webster is collaborating with our team in genetic analyses of parentage. His research is very oriented towards understanding of evolution of sociality in birds. Dr. Webster is also directly involved with the implementation in Brazil of bioacoustic workshops, conducted by Cornell Ornithology Lab.

Dr. Diego Gil develops with our Lab projects that focus on bird songs. His research encompasses the evolution of acoustic signals, among other signalling and ornamental attributes in birds, in the context of sexual selection. In particular, he conducts research about the effect of sound pollution on the characteristics of bird songs and bird behavior.
The collaboration of Dra. Maydianne Andrade with our Lab is related to a sexual selection project in spiders. Her research tries to understand how social and ecological factors effect the evolution of life history attributes and secondary sexual characteristics. Her studies use invertebrates as models.

Dr. Esteban's main interest is focused of animal ecology, and he conducts his research along the topics of vision ecology and biology conservation. He explores these topics through the perspective of animal behavior. Although generally working with birds, he also has studies involving other taxonomical groups, including mammals, fish, amphibians and insects.
