Notre laboratoire de recherche étudie les processus écologiques et évolutifs qui régissent la diversité biologique sur la planète terre. Nos recherches se basent sur des concepts et des approches provenant de la science de l’écologie des communautés et de la biogéographie.  Notre but visé est de mieux comprendre les mécanismes qui gouvernent l’émergence, la distribution et la maintenance de la diversité. Pour ce faire, nous faisons de la recherche observationnelle et expérimentale sur le terrain, et nous compilons de large base de données sur la distribution, les traits écologiques et l’histoire évolutives des espèces.
