The biogeography of endemism, age, and area

Principal Investigators:

Ted Case


I will be working on three projects during my sabbatical stay at NCEAS.

I am very interested in the quantitative relationship between the
degree of habitat destruction (and deterioration) and species loss and gain
in defined geographic areas. For example, if 50% of native habitat is
converted to man-modified habitats on an island, what proportion of native
species are expected to become extinct? How will the success of exotic
species be affected? Previous work shows that this is going to... more
