Alessandro is a spatial ecologist and a geographer with experience of both terrestrial and aquatic systems. He uses mechanistic and statistical modelling, as well as GIS and remote sensing technology, to answer research questions.

For further updates please see Alessandro's page on ResearchGate.

Current research interests

Alessandro interests comprise:

  • species distribution at the continental, landscape
  • the spatial distribution of ecosystem services, and the associated uncertainty.
  • Alessandro also researches how to integrate biodiversity and ecosystem services in spatial planning for multi-functional landscapes.
  • Finally, the effects of climatic change and land use change on these areas of study, and possible adaptation options, are a core interest.

Alessandro has also been supervising a PhD student investigating how incentive schemes can be devised at the landscape scale.

Research methods comprise statistical and mechanistic spatial models and the use of GIS and remote sensing technology.

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
