The Managing Editor operates the site. The development of editorial guidelines, process design, and initial recruitment of submissions was a collaborative effort among the Associate Editors (listed alphabetically below). The site was conceived by Terry McGlynn, who is overseeing its long-term operation. Editorial Board members (listed below) are participating in the development of content. If you have questions or are interested in participating in the operation of the site, please direct inquiries to email@example.com.
Expertise: coastal wetlands, paleoecology, climate change
Luke Lamb is an ecosystem ecologist focused on the affects of sea-level rise on carbon dynamics in Florida Coastal Everglades marshes. He is currently a M.S. candidate at at Florida International University with his sights set on obtaining a Ph. D afterwards. Luke hopes to work at the interface of paleo and contemporary ecology during his academic career.
Expertise: Biogeosciences, remote sensing, and ecosystem ecology
Atkins is an ecosystem ecologist with a remote sensing problem who works on structure-function relationships in forest ecosystems. He writes for PLOS Ecology and co-hosts the ecology and science podcast, Major Revisions.
Alissa J. Brown
Expertise: plant ecology, forest ecology, applied ecological statistics
Alissa is a PhD candidate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her dissertation focuses on mechanisms of tree species coexistence in temperate forests. Post-PhD, Alissa hopes to focus on changes in species distributions during climate warming events as well as broad-scale patterns of biodiversity.
Expertise: spatial ecology, global change
Paul is a spatial ecologist working on species’ response to global change at multiple scales. He uses different types of modelling and analytical approaches to link population biology, landscape ecology and macro-ecology, mostly in complex forest-farmland landscapes. Paul also LOVES trees.
Expertise: ecological modeling (R, GIS), sex determination, thermal macroecology, unmanned aerial systems (UAS)
Anna (A L) Carter uses remote sensing and spatially-explicit modelling to study the thermal ecology of [mostly] reptiles. Maintains a close friendship with R and tense mutual understanding with GRASS. Meh on pronouns. Follow at @NthChapter.
Expertise: behavioural ecology, sperm competition, human and ecosystem health
Graziella Iossa is an evolutionary ecologist interested in behavioural and population ecology and is currently exploring interdisciplinary approaches to link ecosystem services and human health, in the context of antimicrobial resistance. She is an early career researcher at the University of Lincoln, UK.
Expertise: fisheries, marine policy, marine biology
Elisabeth is a recent graduate of the dual-degree masters program at the University of Maine where she studied both marine biology and marine policy. Her research interests include marine ecology, conservation, domestic and international fisheries, and science communication.
Expertise: social insects, tropical biology, urban ecology
Terry McGlynn is a tropical ecologist, mostly working on the experimental natural history of ants in the tropics. He is a Professor of Biology at California State University Dominguez Hills and a Research Associate in the Entomology Department of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.
Expertise: entomology, evolutionary ecology, systematics
Julia Mlynarek is an evolutionary ecologist interested in species interactions (host-parasite, insect-plant & tri-trophic) and diversification of insects. She is a Research Scientist in Entomology currently focused on agro-ecosystems in southwestern Ontario, Canada.
Expertise: behavioural ecology, social insects, collective decisions
Elva is a behavioural ecologist studying the social organisation of animal groups, using ants as her primary study system; approaches include field studies, behavioural experiments in the laboratory and computational modelling. She is a Senior Lecturer at the University of York, UK.
Expertise: community ecology, evolutionary ecology, microbial ecology
Casey terHorst is an assistant professor at California State University, Northridge. He is a community ecologist and evolutionary biologist who is also focused on increasing diversity and inclusivity in STEM fields.
Expertise: Climate change, microbial engineering, plant-microbe interactions
Ruth Schmidt is a microbial ecologist interested in microbe-plant interactions and is currently working on finding ways to create climate change resilient microbial communities. She is a postdoc at the Institut Armand Frappier, University of Quebec in Canada.
Giulio Valentino Dalla Riva
Expertise: Evolution, network ecology, computational biology, data ethics
Giulio Valentino Dalla Riva is a mathematician using data science to explore networky and evolutionary stuff. Giulio is a Postdoc at the University of British Columbia’s Master of Data Science.
