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.
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.
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.
Claudia Bauzer Medeiros is full professor of databases at the Institute of Computing, University of Campinas (Unicamp), Brazil. She has received Brazilian and international awards for research, teaching, and for her work in fostering the participation of women in IT-related activities. Reserch centered on the management of scientific data and eScience, in particular involving agro-environmental planning, biodiversity, workflow systems and geographic information.
Senior scientist at the Department of Terrestrial Ecology of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology. Associate editor of Insect Conservation and Diversity and Web Ecology.
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.
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 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.
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.
Work on private and community conservation in Africa, with specialisation in governance and economics. As a scholar practitioner and Associate Professor at University of a Florida my goal is to bridge science, practice and policy, including in training. I combine teaching/research with working in field conservation with TNC and on the Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel of GEF
