Ecological Data Sciences

Our research aims to understand how biodiversity is distributed across the world. However, human impacts, such as climate change, land use change, pollution, nutrient enrichment and invasive species are likely to have a disruptive effect on biodiversity, and so our research further aims to understand the magnitude and direction of those disruptions to communities as well as the global patterns of diversity. We often focus on soil biodiversity, as an underrepresented but large proportion of global biodiversity.

To undertake this research, we primarily use synthesised datasets constructed to answer our research questions. The datasetes are often comprised of raw data from published studies, or published results in a meta-analytical framework.

If you are interested in working with us, or using any of the datasets we have compiled, please do get in contact!
