Human impact on the world’s ecosystems is leading to a widespread and accelerating loss of biodiversity. Our research group is interested in understanding the drivers of this change and finding methods to predict future loss and come up with strategies to halt it. A lot of our work involves analyzing and modelling existing data, but we also "get dirty" sometimes and gather data in the field and lab. Most of the team works on vertebrate species, but our interests are as diverse as life on Earth.

Our lab is in the UK but with a Spanish "jefa" también hablamos español

Version en español: Los impactos del ser humano en los ecosistemas del planeta están llevando a una pérdida generalizada y en aumento de la biodiversidad. Nuestro grupo de investigación busca entender los factores causantes de esta pérdida e identificar estrategias para frenarla. La mayoría de nuestro trabajo consiste en analizar y modelar datos existentes pero a veces también nos ponemos las botas o las batas y salimos al campo o nos metemos en un laboratorio. Solemos trabajar con vertebrados pero nuestros intereses son tan diversos como la biodiversidad de este planeta.
