Bruno Alves Buzatto

Lecturer at Flinders University, The University of Western Australia

I am an evolutionary biologist fascinated by behavioural ecology and sexual selection, and my research has mostly focused on insects and arachnids. I am also interested on the evolution of alternative reproductive tactics, male dimorphism and the evolution of phenotypic plasticity. I am currently a Lecturer in Terrestrial Ecology at Flinders University, where I conduct surveys and environmental impact assessments focusing on subterranean fauna and short-range endemic invertebrates. I am also an honorary lecturer at Macquarie University, and I hold adjunct research fellow positions at the Western Australian Museum and the University of Western Australia, where I did my PhD.
