Welcome to the Morueta-Holme Group
Macroecology of the Anthropocene
To what degree do humans determine the distribution and diversity of species?
The overall aim of my research is to advance our understanding of causal processes determining biodiversity patterns and change in the Anthropocene and inform conservation decisions to mitigate the biodiversity crisis. More specifically, my research seeks to quantify the effect of humans relative to natural drivers on “what grows where”, solve the challenge of attributing biotic change to individual drivers, particularly land use and climate change, and apply new knowledge to evidence-based conservation.
