Research group activity concentrates on understanding the key biological processes that maintain biodiversity. In other words, what acts as the glue to hold ecosystems together? We are also interested in the factors that determine species abundance in space and time. There is a particular emphasis on diverse plant communities such as tropical forests, but we also study bacteria, protist and vertebrate communities.
I coordinate the Biosciences undergraduate course BIOL2012, Fundamentals in Ecology. I also coordinate a masters-level field-trip to Plymouth; and lecture on ecology and biodiversity in a variety of other undergraduate and graduate courses.
