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 biologist and nature writer from the Susa Valley, in Northern Italy. At the moment, I'm a PhD student at the University of Turin, where I'm focusing on the effects of global changes on small carnivores, particularly weasels and stoats. I wrote a book about the animals of the city, called "Bestiario invisibile", that was published by Il Saggiatore in 2022.
The macronutrient requirements of the strictly related pine marten (Martes martes) and stone marten (Martes foina) are almost identical, but, at range scale, in areas of putative sympatry (overlapping European ranges) the stone marten tends to be more frugivorous, which makes the contribution of carbohydrate energy to be higher than the target. In...
The pine marten (Martes martes) and stone marten (Martes foina) are considered similar carnivores in terms of morphology, habitat requirements, diet and distribution. Despite their range overlap widely throughout Europe, few studies have analysed their spatial distribution in sympatry. With the aim of investigating the environmental factors which m...
