How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I'm a graduated student in EcoBiology. I'm interested in animal biology and would like to further specialize in topics such as animal ecology, wildlife conservation, evolution and genetics. In particular I'm fascinated by the study of small mammals. I have experienced techniques both in fieldwork and the laboratory.

- Research activities concerned periodic monitorig of both nest boxes and tracking tubes, in different valleys of the Gran Paradiso National Park. The former were employed for a capture-mark-recapture study, while the latter for a presence-absence study. Investigated species were the hazel dormouse and other Gliridae (Glis glis, Elyomis quercinus).
The conservation of pure wolf populations in Europe is currently threatened by anthropogenic hybridization with dogs, through potential extinction of local gene pools due to replacement with domestic gene variants. Distinction of wolf–dog hybrids from wild ancestors is essential for development and implementation of management and conservation plan...
In this long-term study, we evaluated the distribution of three species of Glirids: Hazel Dormouse ( Muscardinus avellanarius ), Garden Dormouse ( Eliomys quercinus ) and Edible Dormouse ( Glis glis ) in the Gran Paradiso National Park (Western Italian Alps). The aim was to investigate the ecology, adaptation strategies, and distribution of these d...
