Bio

Lara Lacher (Ph.D. 2013) received a U.S. Fulbright Scholar Grant for proposed work in the Brazilian Cerrado, a sub-tropical grassland in south-central Brazil. She is partnered with the Universidade Federal de Goiás in Goiânia, Brazil under Dr. Thiago F. Rangel. Her work focuses on developing a prioritization framework for conservation of the Cerrado by combining biodiversity estimates under climate change with threats, predicted development, and the needs of local conservation organizations and governments.
