Research interests and areas of expertise
I have thirty years’ research experience in the fields of forest and environmental economics and rural development. My current research activities focus on: Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) and other policy tools for the provision of Ecosystem Services from agriculture and forestry; analysis of farmers’ and of forest owners’ attitudes and perceptions into participating to agro-environmental and forest-environmental measures; property rights in natural resource management and property regimes in forestry and rural areas; forests as social-ecological systems, forest commons, community forests and analysis of their adaptation patterns and resilience; ecosystem services mapping and modelling and related design of PES mechanisms at landscape scale; Cost estimates of Natura 2000 areas.
