My research program investigates the ecology and evolution of communities on our rapidly changing planet.

I focus on how disruptions to plant-animal interactions lead to changes in biodiversity and ecological function across scales. My approach expands on population ecology by embracing, conceptually and methodologically, that community responses to environmental change are linked across species and discipline.

Recent projects have constructed large scale natural and manipulative experiments, as well as collaborative databases to show that responses to environmental shifts are linked between species, producing non-linear changes to ecosystem services like seed production, seed dispersal, and carbon storage. Addressing these questions at large spatio-temporal scales has also led to new ways of collecting and integrating high resolution physiological, ecological, and movement data.
