Estefanía Micó Balaguer



Dra. Micó works at the Centro Iberoamericano de la Biodiversidad (University of Alicante, Spain) where she conducts research on systematics, phylogeny and biology of Scarabaeoidea. She is a specialist in the larval morphology of scarab beetles, emphasizing their usefulness in taxonomy and phylogeny. She finished her doctoral dissertation in 2001, and her scarab research concerned the taxonomy, phylogeny and biology of Iberian Cetoniidae, Rutelidae and Hopliinae. She has had research visits to the Universidad Estadual Paulista (UNESP) de Rio Claro in São Paulo, Brazil in 1996; the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris, France in 1997; the Université Paul Valéry, Montpellier, France in 1998; the University of Nebraska State Museum in 1999; and the Instituto de Ecología in Xalapa, Mexico in 2000.

She is currently involved in a project conducting research on the biodiversity of the transition area of Mexico supported by CONABIO.
