Biodiversity defines planet Earth, providing food, water, and beauty, for all of its inhabitants.

Yet, Earth’s biodiversity, and the services it supplies, faces great challenges, as result of changes in climate and land use, and global biological homogenization.  Work in our group explores the dynamics of ecological and evolutionary processes that create and maintain biodiversity, and in particular, adaptive radiation, species interactions, and biological invasions.

Berkeley Evolab is the combined research group of Rosemary Gillespie and George Roderick. Our focus is terrestrial arthropods, the most diverse macrobiota on earth, and the biological communities of which they are a part, from microbes to top predators.  The work includes studies of natural biodiversity in the Pacific and California, as well as the impacts of global change on biodiversity, and solutions.
