Development of microsatellite markers for the endangered Neotropical tree species Tibouchina papyrus (Melastomataceae).
12 microsatellite loci for Tibouchina papyrus (Melastomataceae), an endangered species with narrow and disjunct range, endemics to a few localities in "cerrado rupestre" from Central Brazil, were isolated and characterized by sequencing of a genomic shotgun library for primer design.
A synthesis of ecological and evolutionary determinants of bat diversity across spatial scales
It is proposed that it is essential to couple spatial scales and different zoogeographical regions along with their functional traits, to address bat diversity patterns and understand how they are distributed across the environment.
Geographical patterns of phylogenetic beta‐diversity components in terrestrial mammals
The first global representation of PBD in terrestrial mammals is provided and it is demonstrated that at higher latitudes PBD is mostly a result of lineage loss, whereas in highlands it is linked to lineage turnover.

Phylogenetic conservatism of climatic niche in bats
Evidence of phylogenetic niche conservatism is found at the order and family levels but not at the species level, and evolution of climatic niches is non-stationary across the order Chiroptera, consistent with the different histories of clades.
Isolation and characterization of 10 microsatellite loci for Pallas' long-tongued bat Glossophaga soricina (Phyllostomidae).
Analysis of tissues from wing membrane of 67 individuals collected from two populations of Central Brazil showed that these microsatellite loci would be useful for population genetic structure and parentage studies in natural populations of G. soricina.
Bat species of a karstic region in the Brazilian savanna and extension of the Hsunycteris thomasi (Phyllostomidae: Lonchophyllinae) distribution
Abstract We do not have a complete knowledge of the bat species presence in West Central Brazil domain and still do not understand how bats respond to the ecosystems rapid vanishing. We quantified
