the author – Cosmin-Ovidiu Manci

Hello everyone and welcome to (one of) my website(s)!

On short my name is Cosmin Ovidiu Manci and I worked as a biologist at the Retezat National Park Administration in Romania. From 1 september 2009 I left the job from Retezat National Park and now I try to concentrate more on my PhD.

Ever since I was a young boy I was passionate about nature, plants, bugs, animals…you name it. I used to spend endless hours surrounded by a fantastic world, and as I grew up this feeling didn’t leave (I think that only grow with me in the same time). After finishing the primary school I continued my studies at the Forestry Highschool in Timișoara, and after this, one of the obvious choice (at least for me) was to study Biology. This was done at the Timișoara West University. I finished my MD at the “Babeș–Bolyai” University in Cluj with a paper on romanian Odonata. In present I am continuing my studies with a PhD at the “Babeș-Bolyai” University… again on dragonflies.

During these years I was involved in different projects and published several papers.

the website – Greece dragonfly fauna

As already said now I’m a PhD student and because of some miracle I have a scholarship. One of the condition of this was to do a stage in another EU country for some time… and chose Greece. And because also here my main interests are (again) dragonflies decided to create a “brother” for romanian version of this website.

So here will be about dragonfly fauna of Greece, what species, where… more in the species section dedicated… about this website.
