Ricerca

 Current PhD project

Animal Ecology through Stable Isotope Ratios

The project will focus on isotopic methods applied to Alpine bird migration. Stable isotope ratios of hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, nitrogen and sulfur can help in understanding geographic provenance, trophic level and food webs of the birds. Keratinous tissues like feathers carry informations about the areal where they grew, revealing connectivity existing between breeding and wintering areal. Post-breeding migration through the Alps, whose dynamics are not well known up to now, will be investigated in order to discover which populations are involved in this phenomenon. The use of extrinsic markers, such as banding recoveries and morphometrics, or genetics that have been used until now to study such phenomenon, led no improvement on the knowledge about geographical provenance of migrants. Aim of the study is to unravel which populations cross the Alps, in which period and with which densities. The increase of knowledge that could result from this study could help to support the conservation of migratory birds, particularly in the case of endangered species.
