“Creativity can solve almost any problem.
The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality overcomes everything.”
Toward a more predictive biology and ecology . . . .
The Macroecology lab is an international network of broadly trained ecologists, botanists, physiologists, evolutionary biologists macroecologists, and informaticians. We seek to discover general processes of how organisms (mainly plants but we often stray into other systems and organisms) work and interact with each other and their environment. Our common interests is to synthesize and build a more predictive biodiversity science and ecological science. We often work in tropical and temperate forests and high alpine ecosystems and use combinations of theoretical, computational, informatics, biophysical, trait-based, physiological and ecophysiological approaches.
