António Campar de Almeida

He acquired his Doctorate in Physical Geography at the Faculty of Letters of the University of Coimbra in 1995 with a thesis on "Dunas de Quiaios, Gândara e Serra da Boa Viagem. Uma abordagem ecológica da paisagem” [The Dunes of Quiaios, Gândara and Serra da Boa Viagem: An ecological landscape approach].

He has lectured on subjects in the area of Biogeography and costal Geomorphology and has carried out research on these same themes and conducted analyses of the ecological landscape, the data from which was used to produce a wide variety of published scientific articles.

Ongoing ecological transformations from the changes in soil use in rural areas in the centre of the country have motivated his most recent research activities.
