My research investigates the impact of biodiversity loss on ecosystem services, with a focus on mutualisms and food web dynamics in tropical forest ecosystems. Research in my lab focuses on population and community ecology, plant-animal interactions, tropical biology and conservation. Our research combines comparative studies with manipulative experiments to understand the role of vertebrates in terrestrial systems and to develop effective conservation strategies in today's changing world. Research areas include the Ecology of Bird Loss Project, impact of seed dispersal on tree populations and forest communities, ecological role of top predators, avian pollination, disrupted mutualisms and co-extinctions, novel ecosystems and re-wilding, and cultural impacts of species extinctions.
