Our research is broadly focused on the causes and consequences of biodiversity change.
To do that we create new theories on a range of topics from metacommunities to evolutionary rescue. We test and refine theory with experiments--in the lab and the field--by employing a range of model and non-model systems. We strive to communicate our findings far beyond the Ivory tower. We are also engaged in changing how collaborative science is done and how science is used by policy. Contact us if you can't find what you are looking for here.
