Bruno Alves Buzatto


I am an evolutionary biologist fascinated by behavioural ecology and sexual selection, and my research has mostly focused on insects and arachnids. I also have a great interest on the evolution of alternative reproductive tactics, male dimorphism and the evolution of phenotypic plasticity. I am currently a lecturer at Flinders University, where I am starting a research group focused on behaviour, evolutionary ecology and conservation biology of terrestrial invertebrates of conservation concern, like mygalomorph spiders and burrowing scorpions.
