Biodiversity | Functional Ecology & Biogeography

Dylan Craven

I am an associate professor at Universidad Mayor in the Centre for Ecosystem Modeling and Monitoring in Santiago, Chile. My picture

I explore drivers of temporal and spatial patterns of biodiversity and biodiversity change and their consequences, mostly in grassland and forest ecosystems. I am fortunate to work in a country - 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 do biodiversity and biodiversity-dependent ecosystem functions vary across temporal and spatial scales?

iii) How does biodiversity mediate ecosystem responses to global change drivers?
