Research interests: man-animal relations during the last 50,000 years, use of archaeological remains of animals to reconstruct the palaeo-environment, the domestication of animals - when, where and why? Improvement of livestock in historical times, osteometric techniques for separating closely related taxa and wild-domestic forms. Zooarchaeological evidence for increasingly stressed conditions - the so-called Mesolithic Crisis - in southern Portugal during the millennia prior to the introduction of domestic animals.
