Lúcia Garcez Lohmann


Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Instituto de Biociências (IB)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Lúcia G. Lohmann holds an under-graduate degree in Biology from the University of São Paulo, Brazil (1995), a Masters and a Graduate Certificate in Tropical Biology & Conservation from the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL, 1998), and a Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution and Systematics from the University of Missouri-St.Louis (1998, 2003). She was a post-doctoral fellow at the CCSD (Center for Conservation and Sustainable Development) at the Missouri Botanical Garden (2004). She is currently a faculty at the Department of Botany of the University of São Paulo (USP, since 2004), Executive Director of the Association for Tropical Biology & Conservation (ATBC, since 2019), Research Associate at the Missouri Botanical Garden (MOBOT, since 2004), and Research Associate at the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG, since 2008). She is an Associate Editor for Molecular Phylogenetics & Evolution (since 2017), member of the São Paulo Academy of Sciences (ACIESP, since 2020); corresponding member of the Botanical Society of America (BSA, since 2020); and, honorary member of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences (AAA&S;, since 2021). She is also a Council Member of the Red Latinoamericana de Botánica (RLB, 2013-2018), Flora Neotropica (2003-presente), Flora of Brazil (2008-present), and Flora of Paraguay (Jardin Botanique de Genéve & MOBOT, 2007-present). Her research is highly integrative, combining components of taxonomy, molecular systematics, ecology, and evolution to understand the processes that have shaped the history of diversification and biogeography in the Neotropics. Her research has a special focus in the plant family Bignoniaceae, a conspicuous component of Neotropical forests and an excellent model to study the origin and evolution of Neotropical biodiversity.
