The Anderson lab at CCNY
We study spatial patterns of environmental suitability ... and their ecological and evolutionary consequences.

My lab conducts biogeographic research at the interface between ecology and evolution (see links at upper right). The overreaching theme is to characterize the spatial configuration of environmental suitability for species, and then study its ecological and evolutionary consequences. To do so, we have been deeply involved in the development and application of GIS-based methods for modeling species niches and distributions. Our current projects focus specifically on the small mammals of the northern Neotropics and Madagascar, the latter funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (see Research).
