Claudio J Bidau
Profesor Titular de Biologia
Universidad Nacional de Rio Negro, Rio Negro, Argentina
Dr. Bidua obtained Ph.D. from the Buenos Aires University in 1984. My background in Biology is essentially mulltidisciplinary which is the result of my several interests and the interaction with researchers from many parts of the world as well as my visiting professorships in the USA, United Kingdom, Spain, Brazil and Uruguay. Such a holistic approach Derives from my deep conviction as an evolutionary biologist that knowledge of the complex relationships among all aspects of biodiversity is essential to its understanding and preservation. Thus, I have studied different aspects of Biodiversity and it conservation such as the Ecology, Macroecology and Systematics of several animal groups such as Neotropical Insects, Anurans, Mammals, Molluscs and Vascular Plants. I am also interested in the Evolutionary Genetics and Cytogenetics of these groups and also the appliccation of Genetic Techniques to the study of toxicity of folk medicinal plants. In recent years I became interested in the history of Evolutionary Biology.
