Research Interests

  • Trophic interactions (parasitoids – hosts)
  • Role of species ecological requirements for their evolutionary histories
  • Biogeography
  • Effect of climate change on mountain insect
  • Conservation of grasslands and open-woodlands (autecologies of butterflies,  effect of grassland management on the structure of plant-pollinator networks)
  • Behavioural thermoregulation
