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

Pedro is the founder of the Document Threatened Species Project (Projeto DoTS), a bold initiative to study, document and protect rare, poorly known and endangered species.
The project focuses on little known and little appreciated creatures from Tropical rainforests and was established to help raise awareness about conservation.
