Avi studied biology in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem between 1967-1976 and in 1997 he went overseas to Cornell University as a Postdoc under the Supervisor of R. H. Whittaker. With Whittaker he studied the Diversity of plant species over the Mediterranean and the Deserts around the globe especially in California and with the other teachers at Cornell he was exposed to the "New science of Ecology and Evolution".
 
Since 1979, he has been working in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in the Department of "Evolution Systematic and Ecology". He is a member of the "Center for Rationality" of the Hebrew University where he interacts with scientists from game-theory. Since its establishment in 1991, he has been organizing the Centers' retreat each year which comprises half of the time of lectures and half of the time nature hikes.
 
Since the peace treaty, he has been working in S.Jordan on a diversity of subjects related to the flora, the environment, the archeology, and the Bedouin culture. He has been working on ecological and evolutionary aspects of the flora of the Levant especially – pollination, species diversity and sexual allocation in plants and animals. 
He has recently focused on sex types in plants, studies in "Signaling game" of flagged Salvia, and the pollination of the "Red Anemone Guild" by Glaphyrid beetles.
 
Presently, he is involved in ecological research on sexual allocation and mate choice in plants and beetles, as well as, in writing the second volume of "the Red-Data Book of the Israeli plants".
