Ecology, evolution and conservation of butterflies (Lepidoptera, Insecta)


Issues within my research field: - Adaptive relationships between morphological and behavioural variation in butterflies (postdoc fellowship FWO) - Action plan for the large blue butterfly Maculinea alcon (project for Flemish Ministry AMINAL-Natuur) - Landscape connectivity and butterflies (project for Flemish Ministry, VLINA-program) - More general interest in butterfly ecology (and other insects) and conservation
