Research interestsInvasive Alien Species
PublicationsI am interested in providing scientific evidences useful for improving the effectiveness of invasive alien species management. My previous research focused on vertebrates, mainly mammals, but from 2015, I am working on a European LIFE project on the 'Spatial containment of Vespa velutina in Italy and establishment of an Early Warning and Rapid Response System'.
I have authored 60 papers on Journal with Impact Factor and other 50 papers including books chapters and articles in other journals. I list here some papers representative of my work.
