Pedro Peloso

A biodiversity scientist seeking to study, document and protect the biocultural diversity of our planet. 

RESEARCH
INTERESTS

The main goal of my research is to conceptually unite field-based exploration of biodiversity and comparative biology to understand the processes responsible for the generation and maintenance of global biodiversity. 

 

Most of my research projects fall within three broad areas of the biological sciences: Systematics, Evolution and Conservation.

ART + SCIENCE
=
CONSERVATION PHOTOGRAPHY

Conservation is a science.

Photography is an art.

Mix these two together and we have an extremely powerful tool to change people's views about nature and the environment. Conservation Photography is an upcoming discipline aimed at changing our behavior and how we perceive the natural world.
