Comments As an ethnobiologist of the Ancient World, I have focused my research activities on the reconstruction of the ethnobiology of marine animals in the Greek-Roman world, i.e. how members of these societies perceived, categorized or culturally constructed the organisms in question. I have relied primarily (but not exclusively) on literary testimonies, phonological similarities between ancient and current ethnobiological terms and identification of the biological referents according to both linguistic analysis and the latest available check lists of Mediterranean marine species. I have gone on to study single cases ending up with a lexical corpus of ethnobiological names that I have analyzed (and still continuing to do so) from the broader perspectives of ethnotaxonomy and linguistic ethnobiology.
Since 2017
