I'm a person who wants to contribute to science. I still haven't studied something, but I want to study biology. My favourite places in the earth are the subtropical ones because of their special climate, flora and fauna. My favourite area is the (east) Mediterranean sea and sometimes I also find myself in Black Sea (especially in Crimea) because of the similar flora.

I like walking through fields photographing and discovering new things and in particular recording cicadas.

I've been dealing with

  • Cicadidae (Cicada sp., Lyristes sp., Cicadatra (Syn. Psalmocharias) sp., Tibicina sp., Oligoglena sp., Cicadetta sp, Dimissalna dimissa)
  • Quercus (Oaks)
  • Amaryllidaceae (Narcissus, Sternbergia, Pancratium...)
  • Fabaceae (Vicia, Trifolium, Lathyrus, Hippocrepis, Glycyrrhiza, Colutea...)
  • Lamiaceae (Sideritis, Stachys, Maarubieae...)
  • Malvaceae (Malva, Abutilon)
  • Mimosoideae (Acacia, Vachellia)
  • Asparagales (Agave Aloe, Asparagus...)

One current occupation of mine is writing down the flora and fauna of Oropos, the northernmost part of Attica, which is still less discovered then other Attican regions.

Thanks to everyone for your observations!
