He now occupies the Arthur R. Marshall Jr. Chair in Ecological Sciences at the University of Florida and has launched a comparative study of the structure and dynamics of ecosystems. The Boreal Forests and the Everglades are providing the initial focus for modelling and analysis. The key scientific question is how these systems are organized across scales from centimetres and hundreds of kilometres in space and months to millennia in time. The key policy question is how these systems might respond to global climate change.
He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and has been awarded the Austrian Cross of Honour for Arts and Science. He is currently editor-in-chief of the new on-line journal Conservation Ecology.
During the fall semester he will teach Cross Scale Ecology at the University of Florida.
