Food Web Ecology & Evolution in a Changing World
What we do
We study how traits, trait variation, spatial structure and eco-evolutionary dynamics influence predator-prey interactions, and through those, the structure and dynamics of food webs in a changing world. To do so, we combine mathematical models and computational tools with experimental approaches and data from public databases across systems and taxa.
As a general rule, our science occurs at the interface between a number of things: 1) spatial and temporal processes, 2) ecological and evolutionary dynamics, 3) individual, population and community-level processes, and, 4) theoretical, empirical and computational ecology.
