Personal profile

Stefano Mammola

The information published in this page are entirely managed by STEFANO MAMMOLA who is completely responsible for it.
Interest areas:

My scientific activity primarily focuses on subterranean biology and the use of caves as model systems in which to investigate an array of eco-evolutionary topics. I'm particularly interested in species distribution models, functional ecology, and macroecology. I'm also interested in the taxonomy, biology and ecology of spiders.
