Assistant Professor in the department of Botany, and faculty in the Ecology Evolution and Conservation Biology program at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
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.
The global redistribution of species is leading to large-scale community change. Gaining a process-based understanding for what factors create species and community resilience under environmental variability is an important research objective for our time. My research aims to address this theme by linking physiological thresholds of organisms to the environment they experience to quantify changes in species distributions, the outcome of species interactions, and community patterns. My approach is to link spatial and temporal trends in abiotic variables at biologically relevant scales using standardized experimental protocols, complementary laboratory and field approaches, meta-analytic approaches, and modern statistical tools.
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.
My research focuses on behavioral ecology and biological control. I have published more than 200 papers in international journals with impact factor. I cooperate with more than 80 researchers on various research projects, including FP7 Collective Cognitive Robots and H2020 subCULTron.
I serve as Academic Editor/Executive Editorial Board Member for PeerJ, Parasitology Research, Journal of Cluster Science, Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution, Current Organic Chemistry, BioMed Research International, Asia Pacific Journal of Tropical Biomedicine and many others.
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. Research interests: Phylogenomics, systematics, evolution, biogeography, and comparative genomics of aculeate Hymenoptera (bees, ants, stinging wasps); phylogenetic methodology; social insect biology; evolution of pollinators.
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 an Associate Professor of 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
Full Professor and former Chair of the Department of Biological Sciences at Florida International University. Director of FIU DNA Core facility. Past Program Director for NSF Division of Environmental Biology, Systematics and Biodiversity Cluster.
Research interests include: Molecular Systematics, Evolution, Biogeography, and Phylogeography: Rates, patterns, and mechanisms of molecular evolution , including nucleotide sequence evolution and mitochondrial gene order change, and consequences for phylogenetic reconstruction and reconstruction of ancestral states. Integration of molecular data with paleontological and morphological data. Using phylogenies to address biological questions.
