The effect of environmental and climatic variables on food web structure
The overarching theme of my thesis is the relationship between climatic or environmental variables and food web structure. I am investigating this relationship at multiple scales, using multiple approaches, and a variety of aspects of food web structure. A field research component of my research is situated in Yukon and focuses on arthropod-based food webs.
