    Fish and the city: understanding the effects of urbanization on the ecology and evolution of aquatic biota 

    The expansion of cities worldwide is a major driver of local, regional, and global environmental changes. Despite that, urban areas are often overlooked in ecological and evolutionary studies. In this talk, I will show the mechanisms through which urbanization changes ecological and evolutionary processes in aquatic biota. Such information is fundamental to advance classic theories and for promoting conservation in cities.
