Dimensions of Biodiversity

No single definition of biodiversity exists. Researchers are still working to understand biodiversity’s taxonomic, phylogenetic, genetic, and functional aspects. Our work aims to improve understanding of relationships among different aspects of biodiversity in our study systems, how these relationships are altered by changing environments, and how these changes to biodiversity in turn impact emergent ecosystem processes.

CURRENT PROJECTS:

  • The effects of anthropogenic land-use change on multiple dimensions of microbial diversity in Southeast Asian forest landscapes
  • Evaluating trajectories and drivers of forest succession in Singapore 
  • Patterns of tropical beta diversity across multiple scales and taxa
  • Biodiversity and biofuels
