General subject areas that I am particularly interested in working on at the moment include:
- How do ecological processes involved in maintaining plant diversity vary along natural and anthropogenic gradients?
- How does host-specificity vary among communities and why?
- What consequence are there for fruiting out of synchrony in Diptercarp dominated forests?
- What are the consequences of different coexistence mechanisms for biodiversity-ecosystem functioning relationships?
This list is far from exhaustive and is primarily meant to provide an idea of the sort of questions I am thinking about at the moment. I am more than happy to discuss other ideas!
