Biodiversa+ is a European Biodiversity Partnership which aims to support biodiversity research and to connect science, society and policy. The GaP project aims to strengthen the network of EU protected areas by identifying priority areas to safeguard biodiversity, and influencing EU conservation policies.


INF-ACT is an Extended Partnership (PE) project on the topic of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases with epidemic/pandemic potential


The National Biodiversity Future Center is one of the five National Centers on European research supported by Italian National Recovery and Resilience Plan. The Vision of NBFC is to promote the sustainable management of Italian biodiversity.


The primary aim of the NaturaConnect project is to design and develop a blueprint for a truly coherent Trans-European Nature Network (TEN-N) 


Quantifying the presence of wild species in Central Apennines, and their relationship with livestock, to support human-wildlife coexistence.


Accelerating the monitoring of species extinction risk, by developing an innovative, rapid and consistent framework for prioritizing RL assessments.


Our research combines conservation biology, macroecology, and sustainability science. We investigate the impact of global change on biodiversity, the effect of this impact on humanity, and the strategies to minimise this impact. Here are some of our recent projects, see Publications for full details of our recent and past research.

Insect populations are rapidly declining due to climate change, land-use change and pollution, yet they are largely absent from large-scale monitoring programs. The goal of this project is to fill the knowledge gap on the response of European insects to global change [..]



 Wildlife trade is a major driver of biodiversity loss and a pathway for zoonotic disease transmission. The HUMAN-CONSERVATION project will inform wildlife trade policy, help combat wildlife trafficking, and define frontiers in conservation geopolitics.

The goal of the PREPARED project is to operationalise One Health pandemic preparedness by integrating the ecological prediction of disease emergence with the modelling of disease transmission risk.



Disentangling the links between biodiversity conservation and sustainable development, highlighting human risks associated with biodiversity loss.

Desert Ibex

Understanding the role of intrinsic and extrinsic drivers of change in species niches, to inform conservation planning under climate change.

Foggy Forest

Quantifying the role of wilderness areas for biodiversity conservation, and the biodiversity risk deriving from wilderness loss.


Projecting global biodiversity trend under land-use and climate change, to evaluate scenarios of socio-economic development.
