Presentation

I am interested in behavioural ecology, management and conservation of large vertebrates, with an emphasis on ungulates and mammalian carnivores.

Research lines:

1. Adaptive mechanisms of coexistence in multi-species systems, e.g. competition, facilitation, predator-prey relationships and top-down/bottom-up processes in general.

2. Behaviour of gregarious foragers, including aggressive, vigilance, foraging, reproductive and spatial behaviour.

3. Impacts of ungulates on ecosystems and human activities, as well as mitigation of human-wildlife conflicts.

Other group members:

Teaching/Research staff: Sandro Lovari; Lucia Burrini.

Post-docs: Niccolò Fattorini.

PhD students: Lorenzo Lazzeri; Valerio Donini; Valerio Orazi; Irene Belardi; Martina Calosi

Research Assistants: Giada Pacini; Chiara Gabbrielli; Elisa Iacona.
