Short presentation

I study plant communities – especially tropical forests – by mixing field studies, biodiversity databases, and statistical models. My research explores how environmental heterogeneity influences plant diversity and dynamics across various spatial and temporal scales. I am interested in diversity patterns, species range dynamics, the responses of biological communities to natural and anthropogenic disturbances, and the implications for ecosystem services.

Keywords: climate change community ecology tropical ecology species distributions functional traits range dynamics biogeography macroecology
