Ecological interactions

DESCRIPTION OF THE ACTIVITIES OF THE GROUP


The main interest of our lab is the ecology of interspecific interactions. In particular, we seek to understand the ecological and evolutionary consequences of biotic interactions and how they respond to human-caused environmental changes. Our research is motivated by questions that lead us to combine a variety of approaches, including field observational studies, manipulative experiments, computer simulations, meta-analyses of data from the literature, mathematical models, and conceptual work with pen and paper. We work mainly with plants and insects (bees and other pollinators, ants), but we are open to studying other kinds of organisms if the question requires it.
