This volume collects the contributions to the 73rd Congress of the Italian Zoological Union, held in Florence in September 2012, and organised together with the “Leo Pardi” Department of Evolutionary Biology. The Congress, to which many zoologists, comparative anatomists, reproductive biologists, ethologists and ecologists participated, opened with a plenary reading by Marlene Zuk, from the University of Minnesota, entitled "Mate choice and thinkering with evolution". The Congress was then divided into four symposia: I "From sexual strategies to social behaviour (in honour of Tullia Zetto)"; II "Use of space, orientation and migration (in honour of Guido Tosi)"; III "Endocrine destroyers"; IV "Allochthonous species". The Symposia were enriched by the reports made upon request by Paolo Luschi, Gian Carlo Panzica and Piero Genovesi.

Elena Baistrocchi graduated in Biological Sciences with a thesis in Primatology. Afterwards, she attended the Master in "Management and Conservation of Fauna" and the European Master in "Anthropology and Human Biology". She was coordinator of the project, "European Studbook Keeper" for ring-tailed lemurs (Lemur catta) on behalf of the “Natura Viva” Wildlife Park (Bussolengo, Italy). She made the video: “Commercio illegale, confisca e gestione di Primati" ("Illegal trade, confiscation and management of Primates"), published with the Audiovisual Didactic Centre of the University of Florence. She wrote texts for the following publications: “Il cane lupo cecoslovacco”, “Parco Faunistico La Torbiera – centro per la riproduzione e la conservazione delle specie minacciate”, and for the CD “Il lupo, una leggenda, una realtà”, editorial projects by Natura Service, published by Sotheria. For the University of Florence, the Department of Evolutionary Biology has contributed to the design and coordination of advanced courses, summer schools and conferences under the name “Etologia e benessere animale” ("Ethology and animal welfare"). Marco Zaccaroni was awarded a PhD in Animal Ethology and Ecology at the University of Florence. He is currently a researcher at the Department of Biology of the University of Florence, and a technical director of the Siena 19 Hunting Area. His research activity, carried out within Italian and international research projects, concerned the following main areas: fauna management, study of animal behaviour through bio-acoustic analysis, analysis of environmental preferences in galliforms and lagomorphs, habitat selection, study of the effects of substances with oestrogenic effect present in the environment on animal behaviour. As part of these research projects, he has participated in numerous Italian and international scientific conferences, and is the author or co-author of many publications.
