Diego F. Cisneros-Heredia

Professor (Zoology)

Universidad San Francisco de Quito

I am an Ecuadorian natural sciences researcher and professor at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito (Ecuador). I am interested in learning about the diversity and natural history of species, the factors underlying their patterns of distribution, their shared biogeographic history, and the effects of human activities on species and their habitats. My investigations focus mainly on terrestrial animals (birds, reptiles, amphibians, spiders, insects) and use taxonomic, phylogenetic, and biogeographic approaches and techniques, as well as the application of geographic information systems (GIS) and environmental modelling.
