Carlos A. Peres
Carlos Augusto Peres is a Brazilian field biologist and conservation biologist who works in the Amazon and other neotropical forest regions on questions involving wildlife and biological conservation. His interests are in (i) the large-scale patterns of large-bodied vertebrate diversity and abundance in Amazonian forests; (ii) the effects of different forms on human disturbance, including hunting, habitat fragmentation and wildfires, on Amazonian forest vertebrates; and (iii) reserve selection and design criteria in relation to regional gradients of biodiversity value and implementation costs. He currently co-directs three research programs on natural resource management in eastern, southern and western Amazonia focusing on the ecology of natural and heavily modified landscapes and their role in the retention of biodiversity.
