My current researches are in the field of behavioral ecology and sexual selection, mainly in
reptiles (lizards and tortoises), but I also worked on birds (owls and barn swallow)  and insects (dragonflies). I focused my interests on the evolution and maintenance of colour polymorphism, with
particular attention to the correlations of morphs with immunity, breeding success and
behavioural strategies. In recent years I expanded my work on ecological niche modelling
and morphological adaptations in an evolutionary perspective. I am also interested in
behaviour and ecology of crayfish and how we can translate the results of research into
