Animal Functional Ecology


We are a researchers’ group united by the same fascination, the study of animal ecology. We combine evolutionary ecology approach to the study of the physiological mechanisms that are coming into the base of the adaptations we studied. This multidisciplinary perspective (behavioural ecology, physiology and genetics) allows us to more inclusive understanding of evolutionary processes, and also allows us to have physiological tools with which we can measure the adequacy of the organisms into the environment.
