Advisory Board and Editors Ecology

Anurag A. Agrawal

Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Cornell University. Collaborates with Cornell Chemical Ecology Group and works on various problems in community and evolutionary ecology of plant-insect interactions. Recipient of the David Starr Jordan Prize.

Nigel R. Andrew

My current research interests focus on the impacts that climate change will have on insect behaviour, ecology and physiology; insect community structure along environmental gradients; and insect-plant interactions.
I am currently President of the Ecological Society of Australia and Zoology Museum Curator, University of New England.

Thomas Backhaus

Professor for Ecotoxicology and Environmental Sciences at the University of Gothenburg, with a main interest in regulatory (eco)toxicology and risk assessment of complex exposure situations.

Volker Bahn

I am an Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at Wright State University. Previously I was a postdoctoral fellow at McGill University working in Macroecology with Brian McGill. My PhD is from the University of Maine in Wildlife Ecology with advisers Bill Krohn and Raymond O'Connor, and MS (German Diplom) in Conservation Biology from Philipps University Marburg with Harald Plachter and Peter Poschlod, in collaboration with Alan Burger from University of Victoria.

Joe Bailey

Assistant Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennessee. My lab focuses on: 1) the factors that influence patterns of biodiversity with a specific focus on plant genetic variation, genotypic diveristy, and phylogenetic diversity. 2) The impacts of plant genetic variation and genotypic diversity on associated biodiversity and ecosystem function. Recipient of the Australian Research Council Future Fellow and Rising Star Leadership Fellow.

Anthony D. Barnosky

Professor of Integrative Biology, Curator at Museum of Paleontology, Research Paleoecologist at Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, University of California-Berkeley. Editorial Board of PLoS Biology.

Ugo Bastolla

I got my PhD in Physics at Rome University, working with Luca Peliti and Giorgio Parisi on biologically inspired problems: evolutionary models and Boolean networks. Since then, I have always been interested in computational biology: Protein folding, Stability and population biology constraints in protein evolution, Conformation changes in proteins, Structural evolution of proteins, Theoretical ecology, Ecological interactions among microorganisms.

Emily S. Bernhardt

Emily Bernhardt is a biogeochemist who is broadly interested in the capacity of ecosystems to retain nutrients and energy in the face of human accelerated environmental change. The bulk of her research examines the effects of land use change and chemical pollution on the structure and function of aquatic ecosystems and the potential for restoration and mitigation approaches to reverse ecosystem degradation.

Susan M Bertram

My research addresses how genetic and environmental variation is maintained in sexually selected traits. My students and I use an animal behavior approach that incorporates tools from nutritional ecology, ecological physiology, and quantitative genetics. Our laboratory-based empirical research quantifies the phenotypic and genetically based variation in condition, life-history traits, and sexually selected traits and determines how this variation is influenced by diet and physiology.

T. Martijn Bezemer

Senior scientist at the Department of Terrestrial Ecology of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology. Associate editor of Insect Conservation and Diversity and Web Ecology.

P. Dee Boersma

Wadsworth Endowed Chair in Conservation Science and Prof. of Biology, University of Washington, Director for Center for Penguins as Ocean Sentinels and the Wildlife Conservation Society Magellanic Penguin Project, and Adjunct Curator of Ornithology, Burke Museum. Recipient of 2012 Ocean Conservation Award Aquarium of the Pacific, 2010 Nature Conservancy of Washington Environmental Hero, 2009 Annual Heinz Award for the Environment. Former President of the Society of Conservation Biology.

John F Bruno

John Bruno is a marine ecologist and Professor at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research is focused on marine biodiversity, coral reef ecology and conservation and the impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems. John earned his Ph.D. from Brown University in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and was a postdoctoral fellow at Cornell University in disease ecology. He is currently working primarily in Belize, the Bahamas, Cuba, and the Galapagos Islands.
