addressing environmental issues + ecological questions using

Community Assembly Theory

About us

We are plant community ecologists working at the interface of ecology, biogeography, and conservation.

What we do:

  • attempt to understand the mechanisms that influence patterns of biodiversity

  • combine large-scale observational studies, field experiments, functional and phylogenetic approaches, and advanced statistics and modeling 

to address environmental issues and to explore fundamental questions in eco​​logy
