Isabel Blasco-Costa

PhD in Biology and researcher at the Natural History Museum of Geneva (Switzerland). She researches the taxonomy, phylogeography, and evolutionary ecology of trematodes and monogeneans and is particularly interested in the life cycle of trematodes, their ecological and evolutionary interactions with their hosts, and how that influences the genetics and evolution of these parasites’ populations.

In modern ecology, the traditional diversity indices (usually of richness, abundance, and species evenness) have been highly revealing and useful for monitoring community and ecosystem processes.
