Luis F. Camacho

Ecologist and Naturalist

At the core, I am a naturalist. I use my knowledge on insect biodiversity and natural history, particularly on treehoppers, to test a variety of questions in ecology. The tropical Andes is my home and focus of research to provide a macroecological context to several aspects of my work.
