Márcio Bernardino DaSilva


Birthdate: July 30, 1977

Birthplace: São Paulo, SP, Brazil

BIOGRAPHY:

B.Sc. in Biological Sciences in Universidade de São Paulo (USP) 2000
M.Sc. in Zoology in Universidade de São Paulo – advisor: Pedro Gnaspini 2002
Concluding Ph.D. in Zoology in Universidade de São Paulo – advisor: Ricardo Pinto da Rocha. 2008 (hopefully)

Interested in Systematics of Gonyleptidae and Historical biogeography, mainly the integration of theories and methods (harvestmen offer a prime subject for it!).

DISCLAIMER — This resource was first intended as for private use of the members of the arachnology lab of Museu Nacional, but later we thought "why not to share this with the world?". Eventually if greedy lawyers (redundance...) start to bother us with copyright matters, etc, we may have to be forced to quit the project and keep this just to ourselves.
