Our last paper has been published! It relies on the distribution of short-toed eagle in Italy in relation with its migratory route, the geography of the Mediterranean and the ecological features affecting the breeding area selection. The conclusions suggest that the presence of a natural barrier such as the Mediterranean Sea leads this species to an unexpected southerly direction of colonization in Italy.
