Board member: George Mitsainas, Lecturer of Mammalian Biodiversity, University of Patras, Greece;
Hellenic Zoological Society
George is a zoologist who is interested in mammalian chromosomal evolution, biodiversity, phylogeography and conservation, and loves field work. He is also the Secretary of the Hellenic Zoological Society. For several years he was Director/Coordinator of the Management Body of the National Park of Mt. Aenos on Cephalonia Island, where monitoring programs and management plans were designed and implemented. His main research is on small mammals, particularly voles and mice, and, lately, dormice, but also other species, such as the otter. His free time is happily ‘consumed’ by his three toddlers, but he also enjoys hiking, snorkelling, and travelling abroad.
