Citation list from Google scholar

My research aims to characterize and understand the factors that prompt and shape the diversification of living beings. Most of my research takes advantage of the experimental conditions provided by isolated systems (e.g. islands or caves), which contribute to simplify the intrinsic complexity of Macroevolutionary studies. Additionally, I conduct research on higher-level phylogenies, to investigate evolutionary innovations and clade diversification.
