Cesare Ravazzi

The information published in this page are entirely managed by CESARE RAVAZZI who is completely responsible for it.

PhD in Earth Sciences; ERC panels - PE10(6, _4), LS8(5), SH6(_4); Senior Researcher at the CNR-IDPA (Milano) in Ecoclimatology and Quaternary Terrestrial Palaeoecology and Palaeoclimatology; habilitated (Italian Scientific Habilitation, ASN) for the university teaching in sectors 05-A1 (Botany, level - lecturer), 04-A3 (Physical Geography - lecturer) and 05-A1 (Botany, level - lecturer).
Cesare started out as an Alpine botanist, and soon he got trapped by the fascination of ecosystem history. For his PhD he tackled the palynological study of one of the longest lacustrine archives of the Alpine Quaternary, while later he felt the interest of matching historical and contemporary ecology for conservational purposes as well as disentangling effects of human interaction from climate forcings at all temporal scales of natural and cultural changes, ranging from prehistory to contemporary history. Lastly, he provides a contribution to the problems of global change, as terrestrial ecoclimatologist. Whenever possible, he uses an array of plant and fungal proxies, enriched by environmental parameters, to build up integrated stratigraphies. He also takes care of age information provided by geo- and biochronology. He is currently leading the Research Group on Vegetation, Climate and Human Stratigraphy at the National Research Council of Italy, in Milano. He loves visiting terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems around the Planet. At home, he is an active vegetable gardener. Some numbers - He published 169 scientific articles, including 63 on ISI journals; author of 5 books. Bibliometric indexes - H Index = 30 i10-index = 61; Citations 3186. He tutored / co-tutored 61 degree thesis and 7 PhD thesis.
