EEB Profile


My research is concerned with questions that I regard as central in ecology:

What controls species’ distributions and densities, and what are the determinants of the various components of species diversity? What are the factors that regulate community organization and structure, and what is the relative importance of biotic versus nonbiotic interactions in governing the limits of e.g. species’ habitat ranges, foraging patterns, morphological attributes and other niche parameters?
