Our research uses an interdisciplinary and integrative approach to address how biodiversity is organized at different scales from genes to communities. We combine fieldwork with meta-analysis, molecular tools, and theoretical approaches in the belief that only a synthetic approach can satisfactorily address complex questions in ecology and evolutionary biology. Our work is eminently collaborative and has an important component of outreach and formation. Our synthetic approach aims at asking new questions and addressing old questions in innovative ways at the interface between traditionally segregated biological disciplines. Our specific objectives include:
1) the demographic and genetic consequences of plant dispersal by animals and their effect on gene flow and population connectivity.
2) the conservation genetics of endangered species.
3) the ecological and evolutionary consequences of the structure of genetic diversity at different spatial scales.
4) the patterns and processes of biological invasions and the development of ecology-based tools for their management.
5) the diversity and functions of known plant genes in natural environments.
6) how multi-species interactions shape complex ecological networks, and how the extinction of interactions influences biodiversity loss.
