Research Interests
Examination of the integrative ways in which organisms manage risks,
especially the consequences of defense responses on trophic interactions
and on ecosystem properties and functions. Comparative study of
different model organisms (lizards and insects), in desert,
Mediterranean island, and temperate meadow ecosystems.
 
Research Projects
Empirical examination of a new theoretical framework that uses prey
Physiological reaction to predation- a general way to link
