Around the world
I am also intersted in
species' introductions across
ecosystems, ranges and ecological communities. Currently, I am studying
patterns of range expansion, species invasion and ecosystem survival
across convergent Mediterranean ecosystems in California, the
Mediterranean Basin, Western Australia, the South African Cape region
and Chile. My focus is on birds. I aim to use this model system to test
the effects of introduced alien species on biodiversity and ecosystem
processes across ecosystems.
I am also intersted in biodiversity
patterns in human-dominated
landscapes, and am working on biodiversity patterns in urban,
agricultural and other human related enviornments and their impacts on
native biodiversity patterns and processes.
Biodiversity across altitudinal gradients: the role of ecotones, a study comparing three groups: birds, butterflies and plants in Mount Hermon along an elevation gradient from 200 to 2200 m.
Natural barriers to invasion and their implications for dynamic conservation: the role of transitional environments in maintaining ant species richness, rarity and introduction patterns and processes. With Dr. Harold Mooney, Dr. Deborah Gordon, Nicole Heller and Rebecca Young, Stanford University.
Natural barriers to invasion: the role of boundaries and ecotones: a global comparison (California, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Mediterranean Basin). In collaboration with University of Victoria in Wellington, New Zealand (Dr. Phil Lester and Dr. Stephen Hartley).
