Despite my primary research is focused on birds, I realise that invertebrates are really ideal animals to understand adaptations to alpine habitats in non-model species.

Here I am collaborating with Paola Laiolo and José Ramón Obeso to understand reasons and consequences of such adaptations in alpine grasshoppers in terms of morphology, behavioural ecology and genetic structure.
