My research is geared over the long term towards generating spatially explicit biodiversity scenarios: predicting where and when populations will decline and species will go locally extinct as landscapes are transformed. This research has three distinct components: (1) empirical investigations into species responses to spatial patterns of habitat within landscapes; (2) spatial modelling of habitat loss and landscape change; and (3) drawing together the landscape models and empirical data to generate biodiversity scenarios.
