Interessi di ricerca

Main research interests comprise wildlife ecology and management, with a focus on ecology and conservation of large carnivores. Fields of application range from population assessment and monitoring to space-use patterns and movement ecology, feeding ecology, habitat selection and suitability, landscape connectivity, conservation planning and conflict mitigation. Methods and techiques employed comprise VHF- and GPS-telemetry, noninvasive genetics, camera-trapping, scat-analysis, Resource Selection Functions, population and habitat modelling.
