Background

Research in the Hulshof Lab combines observational, experimental, and theoretical models to understand patterns of biodiversity across large spatial and temporal scales. In particular, we use phylogenetic and trait-based approaches to explain variation in the diversity of plants and Lepidoptera (moths and butterflies) across space and time. We work mostly in tropical forests and across latitudinal, elevational, and edaphic gradients.
