Center for tropical ecology
Our team at the Center for tropical ecology studies all aspects of tropical biodiversity, particularly its evolutionary origins and ecological mechanisms shaping present day ecosystems. Our studies combine extensive field inventories of species and their interactions in tropical ecosystems, particularly rainforests, with manipulative experiments and molecular analysis. We focus particularly on the ecology of plant-insect food webs, tropical forest dynamics, and large-scale distribution of tropical biodiversity. Most of our studies are based in Papua New Guinea, at the New Guinea Binatang Research Center.
