Welcome

Our work is interdisciplinary and combines elements of biogeography, community ecology, landscape ecology, macroecology, global change ecology, evolution, comparative biology, biodiversity informatics and conservation. We use mostly terrestrial vertebrates and plants as study systems. In its sum, our research attempts to integrate across scales of geography and ecological organization - from global to local assemblages.
