Dr Gabriel Yvon-Durocher
Chair in Ecology


Research in my group explores the effects of environmental change on the structure and functioning of ecosystems (which comprise groups of species, their interactions with one another and with the physical and chemical environment in which they exist). We use a combination of laboratory experiments, field surveys and analyses of large ecological datasets to explore the mechanisms that control the cycling of elements through the Earth-system. Our work spans multiple levels of biological organisation, from sub-cellular biochemistry to the dynamics of ecosystems, and searches for similarities across aquatic and terrestrial systems. The ultimate goal of our work is to develop a predictive 'tool box' to forecast how ecosystems will change in a world increasingly dominated by humans.
