Research Specialization

In our research group we are developing and applying novel technological approaches to monitor biodiversity, identify species interactions, and assess ecosystem level responses to changes so that effective predictions can be made about future events. We are particularly interested in how flexibility in species use of resources can make them resilient to environmental change. We are pioneering the use of airborne DNA to study biodiversity at continental scales.
