Ricerca

Principal interest

Ecology of ungulates: life history, heterozygosity and fitness, sociality and behaviour, mating systems and reproductive success, effect of climate changes.

Past research lines

Longevity, body mass and horn growth in mountain ungulates. A comparison of life histories of bighorn sheep and Alpine ibex.
In collaboration with Université du Sherbrooke, Quebec (CA).

Effect of climate changes on horn growth of Alpine ibex

Sociality and social network dynamics of Alpine ibex

"Heterozygosity - Fitness correaltion and reproductive success in Alpine ibex (Capra ibex)".
I analyzed the effect of individual multilocus heterozygosity on body mass, horn growth and parasite resistance of male Alpine ibex. I also analyzed heterozygosity at microsatellites linked to the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC). Finally, I investigated reproductive success of male ibex and the factor influencing it.

Current project

I'm currently working in collaboration with Gran Paradiso National Park and the University of Zurich on life history and distribution of Alpine ibex.
