 Study of the ecological status of river environments by means of:

- communities of benthic macroinvertebrates (response of macrozoobenthic communities to hydrological and substrate variations in flowing water environments; biomonitoring of running water ecosystems);
- ichthyofauna community (with a particular attention to the shaping effect of hydrogeomorfological factors)
- communities of epilithic diatoms (species richness, niche size and environmental value; application of diatomic indices to determine the quality of water bodies; quantitative analysis of epibentonic perifiton),
- aquatic macrophytes community (evaluation of the role of ecological indicators to analyze anthropogenic disturbance),
- Monitoring rivers by means of the main chemical macrodescriptors
- Use of lichens as biomonitors in the assessment of air quality through bioconcentration studies of pollutants and ecophysiological parameters.
