I do experimental field research in community ecology. My research interests are fairly broad but center around the ecology of species diversity. In particular, my research addresses four key questions:
- How is ecosystem function related to trophic and species diversity?
- How important is the regional species pool for maintenance of local species richness?
- How does habitat affect local species diversity?
- How do human activities affect species diversity?
