Full Professor at the University of Bologna from 2014. Botanist and ecologist with research activities in vegetation science, community ecology, biogeography, biodiversity assessment and conservation biology. Coordinator of the Plant Diversity and Ecology Research Team.
My research mission is to understand the patterns and processes of species coexistence in relation to the spatial and temporal scales and to improve the methods adopted for biodiversity assessment. I collaborate with several European and extra-European Research Groups, within the frame of various theoretical, empirical and applied research projects.
I consider Science as a contribution to a better world, peaceful and healthy for the human beings and the other organisms living on the Earth.
