Global Biodiversity Change group, University College London


Our groups's research aims to understand how biodiversity is changing in response to recent environmental change, and to predict how biodiversity will change in future. We are also interested in the consequences of biodiversity change for human societies. To address these questions, our work mostly entails advanced data analysis and the development of large-scale models of biodiversity and ecosystems.

We are based in the Centre for Biodiversity & Environment Research in the Genetics, Evolution and Environment Department at University College London. Visit Tim's UCL profile page.

Our group adheres to a set of guiding principles, aiming to improve the work culture in academia.

Latest news

WELCOME: We welcome Maria Klimczak, who will be doing a masters research project with Silvia, investigating how field size influences biodiversity within agricultural systems.

NEW PAPER: Joe Millard led a paper published last week in Science Advances showing how interactive effects of climate change and land use are associated with large declines in the abundance of pollinators. Declines are estimated to be particularly strong where we grow key crops that depend on animal pollination, such as coffee and cocoa.

WELCOME: We welcome Rodolfo Assis Magalhaes to the research group. Rodolfo will be researching how land-use change impact the diversity and activity patterns of South American biodiversity.
