Centre for Ecosystem Modeling and Monitoring

Universidad Mayor

We explore drivers of temporal and spatial patterns of biodiversity and biodiversity change and their consequences, mostly in grassland and forest ecosystems. We are based in Chile, whose unique geography and climate provide a compelling template to address the following questions:

i) How do ecological and historical drivers jointly shape biodiversity patterns?

ii) How does biodiversity mediate ecosystem processes to global change drivers across temporal and spatial scales?
