In my laboratory, we study ecological and evolutionary consequences of global change on plant-animal interactions.

To address this fascinating topic, we combine field and laboratory experiments with biodemography, quantitative genetics and molecular biology to understand how herbivores, pollinators and seed dispersers adapt to novel environments, for example, novel host plants or projected global warming.

We study interactions in some of the most endangered ecosystems on earth, such as tropical rain forests, montane forests and high-elevation ecosystems in Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico.
