We study ecological and evolutionary consequences of global change on plant-arthropod interactions. To address this fascinating topic, we combine field and laboratory experiments with biodemography, quantitative genetics, molecular biology and insect physiology to understand how herbivores, pollinators and seed dispersers adapt to novel environments, for example, novel host plants or projected global warming.

Our research takes place 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.
