"Big Data, Birds, and Citizen Science: Understanding the Impacts of Global Change"

Allen Hurlbert '94, PhD
Associate Professor
Department of Biology
University of North Carolina

In the Hurlbert Lab, we ask questions about the structure of ecological communities and the processes that are responsible for determining the patterns of diversity, composition, turnover and relative abundance both within local assemblages and around the globe. Our work spans vertebrate, invertebrate and plant communities, and we use a variety of approaches from manipulative experiments to modeling to working with global-scale data sets.
