    Our lab is broadly interested in the mechanisms underlying patterns of plant species distributions, their relationship with ecosystem structure and function, and their response to resource exploitation and global change. We work primarily in the diverse lowland forests of South America, with principal research sites in French Guiana, Peru and Brazil. Current research focuses on four themes.
