Instructor: Lcia Lohmann, Ph.D.

Lcia Lohmann, Ph.D.
Lcia G. Lohmann is a professor in the Department of Botany at the University of So Paulo (since 2004) and the Executive Director of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation. She is also a research associate at the Missouri Botanical Garden and New York Botanical Garden.

Her primary research interest is to understand patterns of plant diversification and biogeography in the Tropics, especially in the Amazon basin. Her research is highly integrative, combining components of classic taxonomy, phylogenetics, geology, ecology, evolutionary biology, and conservation. Devoting her career to unraveling the biotic richness of the Amazon Basin and Latin America generally, Lohmann has substantially advanced knowledge of the regional ecology and biogeography of these regions, thereby substantially assisting efficient regional conservation.

She graduated from the University of So Paulo with a Bachelor's degree in Biology (1995) and obtained her Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution, and Systematics from the University of Missouri-St. Louis (1998, 2003). She is a Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAA&S) and the So Paulo Academy of Sciences (ACIESP).
