I’m a professor of systematic Botany at the university of Molise (Italy) and the curator of the Herbarium IS. PhD in Botanic science at the University “La Sapienza” Rome in 1997.My researches are concentrated on natural vegetation and vascular flora: ecology, chorology, cenology, distribution and genetic aspects of the Apennines and Mediterranean region. The topics researches are in the study of intra- and interspecific variation in some critical genus of the Italian flora (Quercus, Rosa) using an integrated approach: macro and micro-morphology analysis, geometric morphometric analysis and molecular analysis. In the last years, I have focused my study on the medicinal plants, distribution, folk uses and metabolites collected in the Apennines (Italy).
