Lesley Lancaster

Last name

I am a leading young researcher in thermal ecology and biogeography, with particular expertise in understanding how anthropogenic habitat modification affects species distributions and the evolutionary process. I am highly motivated to advance our understanding of how species and ecosystems will respond to human-wrought changes at global, regional, and local scales. Such understanding can provide much-needed impetus to policy, as well as help us to generally understand resilience in natural systems and how past and ongoing geographic processes shape the observed patterns of biodiversity.
