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: Ori­gin and birth of species
  • Movement: Dispersal of species
  • Maintenance: Persistence of species through interaction with other species
  • Extinction: Disappearance of species

Our research can help society address two of the most pressing challenges of our time, namely; how to combat the ongoing global mass extinction of species, and predict the effect of global climate change on biological diversity.
