Educational and work
Paulo A. V. Borges has a Ph.D. diploma in Insect Ecology from the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine – University of London (1997). Since 1988, he has been involved in biodiversity research, using arthropods as model organisms and the Macaronesian islands, particularly the Azores, as model systems. His current research is driven by three overarching objectives: i) collect long-term ecological data to investigate the processes affecting patterns of species diversity, abundance and distribution at different spatial scales; ii) use Macaronesia as a model system to investigate ecological and evolutionary mechanisms responsible for shaping island biotas; iii) identify pathways that impact oceanic indigenous assemblages under global change for conservation purposes. Paulo A.V. Borges has published extensively using Azorean Islands as a model for understanding arthropod community structure in island ecosystems, with 154 published or accepted papers in ISI recognized journals. From those, 50% are from the First Quartile in the areas of Ecology, Entomology and Multidisciplinary Sciences. He has also published 11 books as author or editor (including the complete lists of the terrestrial biodiversity of Azores and Madeira archipelagos), 58 Book Chapters and about 60 published or accepted papers in Refereed Journals without Impact Factor
