Primære forskningsområderRange size distributions in macroecology
My research interests are broad and include patterns of distribution and abundance of both plants and animals, with special emphasis on practical applications in relation to conservation and biodiversity monitoring; more generally, I am keenly interested in the influence of natural history and small-scale processes on broader ecological patterns. I am working with the relationship between distribution and abundance of organisms, with special emphasis on the assemblage of Danish breeding birds.
My current project is on the role of range size distributions in generating large-scale macroecological patterns, such as species richness and spatial turnover. I am also investigating the possible role of species-level heritability of range size in generating present-day range size distributions.
