Key Research Interests

Karl’s primary research tests hypotheses regarding how biodiversity responds to environmental change, and how negative impacts of human activity can be minimised. This research considers a wide range of environmental drivers but focuses on urban development and climate change. He is also interested in how biodiversity responds to natural environmental gradients. His research typically combines large scale macroecological approaches with intensive fieldwork.
