The aim of Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate is to elucidate biology’s “laws of nature” by focusing on the four main processes influencing life on Earth: Speciation, Movement, Extinction, and Maintenance.

Our research helps society address two of the most pressing challenges of our time: How to combat the ongoing global mass extinction of species, and how to predict the effects of global climate change on biological diversity.
