Advisory Board and Editors Biodiversity

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.

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.

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.

Sean G Brady

Research Entomologist and Curator of Hymenoptera, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution. Primary research interests: Evolution of bees, ants, and other insects. Associate Editor: Insect Conservation and Diversity. Editorial Board: Insect Systematics and Evolution, Systematic Biology.

Barbara G. Briggs

Honorary Research Associate of the National Herbarium of New South Wales, Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. Past president of Australasian Systematic Botany Society. Recipient of the Clarke Medal for Botany.

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.

Hannah L Buckley

I am a Senior Lecturer in Ecology at Lincoln University, New Zealand. My research focuses on understanding the processes that structure biological communities. In particular, I am interested in drivers of spatial and temporal patterns in species diversity, such as environment, species interactions, dispersal, and phylogenetic constraints. I work with a wide range of taxa including invertebrates, plants and fungi, in a variety of field and laboratory-based systems.
