What we do:
Our research span evolutionary ecology, community ecology and global change biology.
Research projects are equally split between applied issues of conservation importance and basic scientific questions involving evolutionary ecology and community ecology. The thread in common across our different research projects is that we strive to understand phenomena through the lens of sensory ecology.
