UMR 7179 CNRS-MNHN
1 avenue du petit château
I am a tropical forest ecologist studying the animal-plant relationships, mostly fruit-eating vertebrates and seed dispersal, interested in the conservation and the sustainable use of non-timber forest products, and trying to educate stakeholders and people to minimize the impact of anthropogenic activities on tropical biodiversity and ecosystem health.
CNRS, UMR 1355-7254
Institut Sophia Agrobiotech
06900 Sophia Antipolis
I am a tropical ecologist interested in wetlands and floodplain ecology and conservation, seeking to enhance conservation efforts in tropical countries and improve networking between European tropical ecologists.
University of Marburg
I am a conservation ecologist interested in functional biodiversity research who seeks to better understand the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in the face of human activities.

Senckenberg Natural History Collections Dresden
Königsbrücker Landstr. 159
I am animal ecologist and herpetologist interested in how phylogeny and ecology drive patterns of functional diversity in biological communities
University of Bayreuth
I am a tropical plant ecologist interested in the factors shaping tropical tree diversity under current and future climate, with a focus on direct and indirect effects of drought. To that end, I am explicitly linking plant physiological and functional ecology with population and community ecology.
Czech Academy of Science
37005 Ceske Budejovice
I am a tropical ecologist interested in the ecology of plant-insects food webs in tropical forests and conservation of tropical biodiversity.
I am a Tropical Forest Ecologist and conservation geneticist with a primary focus on plant reproductive ecology. I aim to advance our understanding of how habitat degradation, especially fragmentation, impacts on plant biodiversity.
Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden
Chinese Academy of Sciences
I am a conservation biogeographer looking at patterns of diversity and drivers of biodiversity change across Southeast Asia
60325 Frankfurt am Main
I am interested in species communities and their ecosystem functions and services. In particular, I study ecosystem functions provided by birds across elevational gradients in temperate and tropical mountain regions.
University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover
I am a behavioural ecologist and aim to understand the factors, that drive and influence the evolution of social structures, the demography, ecological niche construction, distribution, connectivity and the long-term survival of lemur populations on various spatial scales.
Centre of Biodiversity and sustainable Land Use
I am a scientific coordinator of interdisciplinary research and teaching projects in the Tropics and Subtropics with focus on biodiversity assessment and resource management.
Department of Crop Sciences – Agroecology
I am a community ecologist interested in land-use impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem services in tropical landscapes.
Head of Dept., Forestry Worldwide
Thünen Institute of International Forestry and Forest Economics
21031 Hamburg, Germany
I am a forester, contributing to science-based solutions for sustainable policies in the field of multipurpose forestry, ecosystem services and livelihoods in tropical forest landscapes. My major motivation for participation in the advisory board of the Society for Tropical Ecology is helping to bridge the gap between solid ecological research and sustainable management of forest ecosystems and livelihoods of forest dependent people in the tropics.
Behavioral Ecology & Sociobiology Unit
Leibniz-Institut für Primatenforschung
37077 Göttingen, Germany
I am a primatologist and behavioural ecologist, particularly interested in primate ecology and animal-plant interactions, and run a field research site in Peruvian Amazonia.
Untere Karspüle 2
I am a plant ecologist, interested in the composition of tropical plants and the ecosystem functions of tropical forests along environmental gradients and under global change impacts.
PO Box 47
6700 AA Wageningen
I am a community ecologist studying interactions between wildlife and plants, such as seed dispersal and herbivory, in the tropics as well as the temperate zone. Much of my work involves the use of camera traps to record animal presence, abundance and behaviour.
