Research expertise

My research goal is to scale up from the ecology of individual animals and plants to populations, communities and ultimately whole ecosystems. I do this by a) studying the behaviour of animals and the fate of plants at the scale of individual organisms, and using this information to predict how groups of individuals might perform; b)  documenting ecosystem-scale patterns in biodiversity, and to link these patterns with important environmental variables like water flow or food supply; and c) making ecological models that try to unify processes acting at different scales into a holistic understanding of ecosystems

Most of this work is set in between the tidemarks on rocky shores and sandy beaches among the habitats and species I know best.
