Much of the research looks at Mediterranean and tropical ecosystems, and is based on a trio of observations/ experiments/ theory via interdisciplinary approaches that include human and social sciences, and biomathematics. A key objective is the development of scenarios of the evolution of ecological systems, and strategies for their conservation, restoration or rehabilitation.
