A short presentation of yourself:
The scientific interests of Prof. Nimis are centered on four main fields:
Ecology - Bioindication and radioecology using lichens and bryophytes as bioindicators and bioaccumulators.
Quantitative biogeography – multivariate analysis of plant distribution ranges in different parts of the world (Alaska-Yukon, Ontario, Siberia, Europe, Argentina).
Lichenology - from floristics and taxonomy to vegetational and applied studies. Prof. Nimis is presently writing a lichen flora of Italy.
Biodiversity , with emphasis on the automatic generation of identification tools.
