Metapopulation biology and biodiversity research

My main research field is metapopulation biology, which is concerned with the ecological, genetic and evolutionary consequences of natural and anthropogenic loss and fragmentation of habitats. I have made many conceptual, theoretical and empirical contributions in this field. Another current area of research is the interactions between environmental biodiversity, human commensal microbiota and chronic inflammatory diseases.

Keywords: Metapopulation theory / habitat fragmentation / population dynamics / conservation / science policy

Subject area(s): Evolution & Ecology
