Biodiversity & Community Ecology

Our research interests focus on how biodiversity is maintained, how it is lost, and the consequences for the functioning of ecosystems and the provision of ecological services. We currently investigate these questions mainly in grassland and tropical forest ecosystems. Our approach is to test hypotheses derived from ecological theory using experimental and observational techniques and modern statistical methods.
