Melodie McGeoch is a sabbatical visitor to the Max Planck - Yale Center and BGC Center.

Melodie’s research focuses on the ecology and conservation of populations and communities. Her interests extend from quantifying and modeling the abundance and distribution of species to global change impacts on protected areas. She and her research group use plant and animal populations and communities to examine the dynamics of biological invasions and the response of communities to changing environments. Other projects include the quantification and monitoring of trends in biological invasion for the purpose of informing biodiversity policy and management and the response of sub-Antarctic terrestrial ecosystems to climate change.
