Educational and work
Our research projects aim to understand the mechanisms underlying the structure of ecological networks and functional consequences, using a combination of empirical field observations, chemical analyses, experiments and modelling. We compare a broad spectrum of systems, including plant–pollinator, plant–herbivore, predator–prey and dung–beetle interactions, as well as social insects. We work in temperate and tropical ecosystems.
