THE AUTHORS


THE AUTHORS


Eduardo Parentoni Brettas was born in the city of Ponte Nova, Minas Gerais, Brazil, in 1962. His first drawings of birds date to his childhood spent in the lush nature of Brazil. His first great supporter was his mother, Indiana Parentoni Brettas, who encouraged her son to become a master painter of nature. His works have been commissioned by the great centers of ornithological studies, including the University of São Paulo in Brazil and Princeton University in the United States, and are displayed in museums and art galleries in Atlanta, Dubai, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, and elsewhere, as well as private collections around the world. Eduardo regularly teaches courses and lectures on naturalistic art, in which he generously shares his talent and technique with professional and amateur artists. Eduardo lives and works in Juiz de Fora, Minas Gerais, where he lives with his wife, Vanessa, and his two sons, Tiago and Ricardo.

 

Luís Fábio Silveira was born in the city of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil, in 1974 and received his PhD in Zoology from the University of São Paulo (USP) in 2003. A born scientist with a passion for birds since childhood, Luis Fábio is curator of the bird collection of the Museum of Zoology of the University of São Paulo (MZUSP), the largest collection of Brazilian birds in the world. Having published more than 100 scientific papers and 14 books, he is one of Brazil’s most important scientists conducting research on ornithology. Brazil is home to the greatest diversity of birds in the world, with more than 1900 known species, and Luís Fabio’s work has contributed to countless public and private initiatives aimed at conserving and managing this diversity. He also advises master’s and doctoral theses at USP, thereby contributing to the formation of the next generation of Brazilian and foreign scientists specialized in the study of Brazilian birds. When he is not conducting field expeditions throughout Brazil, Luís Fábio is based in the city of São Paulo, where he lives with his wife, Érika.

“A LONG TIME AGO, MUSEUMS DISCOVERED THAT ONE PATH LIES IN THE ASSOCIATION OF ART AND SCIENCE IN ORDER TO TOUCH AN UNSPECIALIZED PUBLIC AND WIN OVER HEARTS AND MINDS FOR THIS CAUSE THAT BELONGS TO ALL OF US: THE PRESERVATION OF BIODIVERSITY AND ITS INCONTESTABLE AESTHETIC VALUE. TERRA PAPAGALLI EMERGES AS A GREAT ALLY IN THIS PROCESS, WITH THE PROMISE OF A FRUITFUL LEGACY.”

MARIA ISABEL LANDIM

HEAD OF THE DIVISION FOR CULTURAL DISSEMINATION

 

“IN ADDITION TO THE BEAUTY OF THE ILLUSTRATIONS, THIS PUBLICATION STANDS OUT FOR PRESENTING HIGHLY RELEVANT SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION FOR INITIATIVES TO CONSERVE WILDLIFE SPECIES, COMPILED BY ONE OF THE GREATEST CONTEMPORARY SPECIALISTS IN BRAZILIAN BIRDLIFE, INCLUDING THEIR GEOGRAPHIC DISTRIBUTION AND THE BASIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THEIR NATURAL HISTORY.”

MARIO BARROSO RAMOS NETO

SUPERINTENDENT OF CONSERVATION

“TRANSLATING ALL OF THE EXUBERANCE AND BEAUTY OF THE PSITTACIDAE INTO BOOK FORM, WITH PAINTINGS BY A SENSITIVE, CAREFUL AND OBSERVANT NATURALIST ARTIST LIKE EDUARDO BRETTAS, IS A DREAM GIFT. WITH INFORMATIVE AND PASSIONATE TEXTS ON THE BIRDS BY LUÍS FÁBIO SILVEIRA, WE HOPE THAT READERS WILL JOURNEY WITH US THROUGH THIS PROJECT AND HELP US TO CONSERVE THE BIODIVERSITY OF BRAZIL.”

NEIVA MARIA ROBALDO GUEDES

PRESIDENT OF THE ARARA AZUL INSTITUTE

“WHEN ART MEETS SCIENCE, MORE THAN JUST THE UNION OF EMOTION AND PRECISION, A NEW FORM OF COMMUNICATION IS BORN. THE WORK TERRA PAPAGALLI IS A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THIS ALL-TOO RARE AND NECESSARY OCCURRENCE.”
