From 2013 to Currently, Floristic and genetic diversity of the Mini-corridor Sooretama-Goytacazes-Comboios as support for the implementation of the Central Ecological Corridor of the Atlantic Forest , The proposal focuses on the floristic knowledge of three conservation units located in northern Espírito Santo state, Brazil, which are included in the planning of the biodiversity corridor to the southern coast of Bahia and north-central of the Espírito Santo state, known as Mini-corridor Sooretama Goytacazes-Comboios. Also focuses on the knowledge of the genetic structure of populations of co-occurring plants in the study areas and that are important from a structural viewpoint or under some threat condition.
From 2011 to 2014, Taxonomy and Diversity of Angiosperm Flora of the Espírito Santo state, Brazil , The project is divided into: (1) expanding the knowledge of Brazilian biodiversity, focusing on plants (2) mapping of diversity for some taxa known or reasonably and its relationship with potential explanatory variables (3) biodiversity monitoring (4) information applicability on plant biotechnology. General aim to increase knowledge about the diversity of plants, evaluating the usability of data herbaria available online and provide consultation to monitor and interpret the occurrence of species over time interfaces, indicating gaps in taxonomic and geographical knowledge and providing subsidies for conservation of Brazilian biodiversity.
