Geogenomics | 01.07.2016

 

Geogenomics is a new discipline aimed at explaining biological diversity in tropical rainforests. With projects focused on the Amazon and the Atlantic Forest, biologists and geologists explain how the interplay among different areas of knowledge contributes to research development.
