Roberto Bertoni, CNR-IRSA Water Research Institute, Verbania, Italy

Dr. R. Bertoni is Emeritus Senior Scientist at CNR-IRSA (National Research Council - Water Research Institute) in Verbania, Italy. Here, he continues working on limnological research with a focus on Aquatic Microbial Ecology since his graduation in biological sciences (University of Milan, 1971). His research developed through numerous international experiences which allowed him to study many freshwater environments in different ecological conditions. He was responsible for several EU projects and coordinator of the limnological research on Lake Maggiore, promoted by the International Commission for the Protection of Italian-Swiss waters (CIPAIS). In 2015 he set up a museum of the ancient instruments of limnology hosted in the CNR IRSA of Verbania. He chaired the Organizing Committee of the 33rd Congress of the International Society of Limnology, held in Torino (Italy) in August 2016. He is author of over 130 scientific publications, of textbooks and of popular science books on limnology.

Diego Fontaneto, CNR-IRSA Water Research Institute, Verbania, Italy

Dr. D. Fontaneto is a Research Scientist at CNR-IRSA (National Research Council - Water Research Institute) in Verbania, Italy. He is a zoologist and an ecologist interested in biological diversity. His research activity focuses on biodiversity, including the description of the patterns at different spatial and taxonomical scales, mostly in aquatic habitats, and the inference on the processes originating and maintaining such diversity. His work is often at the boundary between ecology and evolution, and rotifers are his favourite model organisms.
