Understanding the redistribution of life.
Our natural world is changing faster than ever, posing new challenges to ecology and conservation science. In the Sunday Lab, we aim to understand the role of climate and global change on the distribution of biodiversity, through both direct and indirect ecological responses. We use data synthesis, theory, and controlled experiments to connect physiological responses of individuals to processes regulating population dynamics and the outcomes of evolution. We also aim to understand the human impacts of species' range shifts, and opportunities to mitigate these through conservation practice.
