Research interests:
My interests lie at the intersection of community ecology, macroecology, and biogeography. Part of my work examines the basic community ecology of bats and rodents in Paraguay, California and Texas, in particular the effects of species environment interactions, dispersal, seasonality and competition on the structure of communities. I am also interested in the mechanistic bases of broad-scale patterns in the structure and diversity of communities and how to use this information to better conserve the world's biota. Typically I explore spatial variation of New World mammals, particularly bats, using indices that incorporate information regarding multiple dimensions of biodiversity.
