Research interests

Andrea Gori is associate professor at the Università del Salento in Lecce (Italy). His research focuses on the study of the diversity, biology and ecophysiology of marine ecosystem engineering species (primarily gorgonians, soft and stony corals), to provide understanding for the sustainable management and conservation of marine ecosystems located from the coastal area to the deep-sea.
