Main research interests

The common background of all my scientific activities is the analysis of the conceptual grounds of systematics and evolutionary biology. My present empirical projects, on poorly known environments of the deep-sea, are developed in the framework of “Integrative Taxonomy”, in which methods in phylogenetics, population genetics and ecology are combined to provide insights into the origins of species diversity.
