Speaker:  Dr Tim Newbold, Research Fellow, Centre for Biodiversity and Environment Research, UCL

Rapid environmental changes are driving major changes in the world’s biodiversity. In this talk, Tim will present his recent work investigating how habitat loss and climate change are impacting the world’s biodiversity. He will highlight the tropics as an area where his work has shown biodiversity to be particularly sensitive to environmental changes.

Tim’s work aims to understand how biodiversity is changing in response to recent environmental change, and to predict how biodiversity will change in future. He is also interested in the consequences of biodiversity change for human societies. To address these questions, his work centres around the development of large-scale models of biodiversity and ecosystems.
