This project examines via experimental manipulations and observations, the impact of herbivores on plant community, structure and diversity.
We seek to understand how the plants' natural enemies affect the ecology and evolutionary trajectories of plants in tropical ecosystems in Latin America.
Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Brazil.
This is a multi-faceted project aimed at understanding how drivers of global environmental change (deforestation, animal over-exploitation [defaunation], invasive species, and the interaction among drivers of global change affect the ecological interactions between species and how this, in turn, threatens ecosystem services.
Mexico, Brazil, Kenya, the Channel Islands (Central Pacific)
We are experimentally testing the effects of diversification (plant species enrichment) on the control of disease and productivity of oil palms, as well as on zoonotic disease risks in humans, as part of a larger project (INOGO) that attempts to combine biodiversity conservation with human wellbeing.
