Michele Di Musciano
I am an environmental biologist with a background in alpine plant ecology, ecological modelling, and plant dispersal traits. I am currently working on past and present factors shaping diversity patterns of plant communities from micro to macro scale. Focusing on mountain ecosystems, my principal aim is to disentangle the role of climate, topographic and anthropogenic factors on the taxonomic, functional, and phylogenetic composition and dissimilarity of plant communities. I’m currently focusing also on conservation biology investigating the role of protect areas in conserving plant biodiversity.
I’m currently a postdoc at University of L’aquila and I’m also working with BIOME lab, Alma Mater Studiorum – University of Bologna.
