Knowledge about species geographic distributions is essential for understanding the ecological and evolutionary causes underlying the spatial structuring of biodiversity. Niche modelling can be useful in the identification of abiotic factors affecting the geographic limits of genetic lineages and give insights on whether speciation or genetic variation is associated with divergence in the ecological niche.


Guilherme Dias is currently a PhD student at CIBIO-InBIO/University of Porto and CEFE/University of Montpellier, supervised by Catarina Pinho and Pierre-André Crochet. He is graduated on Biology by the University of Évora and has a MSc on Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution in CIBIO-InBIO/UP with MSc thesis about population genetics of betic midwife toad.
