Paulo Borges

Universidade dos Açores, Portugal


Paulo Borges obtained the B.S. degree in biology, University of Lisbon, Faculty of Sciences, Lisbon (1984-1988), the M.S. degree in biogeography, University of Azores, Portugal (1989-1991), and the Ph.D. degree in insect ecology, Imperial College, University of London, London, UK (1993-1997). His ongoing research focuses on the study of biodiversity of Azorean arthropods, with emphasis on xonomy, ecology, macroecology, biospeleology, and biogeography. He is also interested in the development of species-area models that could describe patterns of species richness and potential extinction on islands, empirical modeling of species distributions at different scales, and analysis of processes affecting patterns of species richness of arthropods at different spatial scales. He serves as an Auxiliary Professor with Aggregation at CITA-A Azorean Biodiversity Group. For more details, please visit
