Professor of Botany and graduate faculty in Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Editor-in-Chief of Pacific Science. Research interests include invasive species, plant-animal interactions, population biology, island biology, conservation and biogeography.
I am Assistant Professor of Soil and Plant Community Restoration in OSU's School of Environment and Natural Resources. My research focuses on developing methods for the restoration and management of ecosystem properties and functions including vegetation community composition, habitat structure, fire regimes and carbon and nutrient cycling. Current research sites include temperate, semi-arid and tropical ecosystems.
Current work in our lab includes mountain pine beetle functional genomics, tree defenses against herbivores and pathogens, insect chemical ecology, and insect biodiversity research.
We conduct our research across multiple scales and we use available tools – established and cutting-edge – to search for answers to complex entomological and ecological questions.
I am a marine scientist with eclectic interests including crustacean biology and fisheries, fisheries management generally, krill swimming behaviour, cleaner fish, diver interactions with reefs, the relationship of marine commensals and their hosts and the eyes of shrimps. I work in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of Hull. I am a collaborator in ICE-T with the Oxford University Natural History Museum. I am a PADI instructor and a member of the UK Scientific Diving Supervisory Committee.
Dave Johnston is a biological oceanographer and marine conservation ecologist whose research focuses on the habitat needs of marine vertebrates in relation to pressing conservation issues.
After graduating from the Biology Dept of the University of Athens, Greece, in 1994 I jumped immediately to my PhD dealing with benthic-pelagic coupling, until 1998. In 2000, I spent six months working on coastal Cyanobacteria at the Trondhjem Biological Station. Between October 2000 and September 2002 I worked as a post-doc at the lab of Andreas Teske, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, USA. Upon my return to Greece, I worked for ca. 2.5 years as a research associate at my old lab where I did my PhD. In March 2005 I was appointed as an Assistant Professor of aquatic microbial ecology at the Department of Ichthyology & Aquatic Environment, University of Thessaly, Greece. Since March 2015 I am a full Professor at the same department.
In my lab we investigate patterns and processes that underpin the distribution and abundance of microorganisms in different habitats of the aquatic environment. Some of our quests deal with the following:
- How do aquatic microbial communities assemble?
- Which members of the microbial trophic web are the key players in defining and maintaining community structure?
- How do these trophic links change over time?
- What is the role of spatial structure in regulating the community’s stability?
- How do abiotic parameters regulate ecosystem functioning of microbial processes?
- What types of association exist between prokaryotes and aquatic animals?

Ben Letcher is a quantitative stream ecologist working at the interface of field studies and mathematical models of population and evolutionary dynamics. My group is combining information from long-term intensive studies of stream fish with extensive studies to develop broad scale models of population response to environmental change.
A Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Environmental Studies Program at Binghamton University in New York.
Chiyuan Miao is a full professor in the Faculty of Geographical Science,Beijing Normal University, China. His researches mainly focus on the soil erosion (slope scale), Eco-hydrology (watershed scale) and climate change (continent/global scale).
