Funded iDiv Working Group on sCaleWebs – Unifying environmental and spatial determinants of food web structure across spatial scales

I will be part of a working group on food web structure across spatial scales led by Gustavo Romero (UNICAMP Brazil) and Diane S. Srivastava (UBC Canada) at iDiv Germany on integrating network, metacommunity and trait-based analyses of food webs to determine: (1) which traits of species are most important in determining trophic interactions, (2) if species traits determine shifts in food web structure over environmental gradients, and (3) how and why does food web structure changes over space. We will address these questions using the aquatic food webs in tank bromeliads across the entire range of this system, from Mexico to Argentina and through the Caribbean. I am so excited to be part of this!
