Scientific interests

I’m interesting in wide range biology and ecology bee’s, in peculiarity connected with their reproduction subjects:
• Biotic and abiotic factors affecting reproduction of bees
• Comparative anatomy of reproductive arrangements of different species bees
• Volume ejaculate and viability semen.
