New Associate Editors: Spring 2022

We have recently welcomed two new Associate Editors to the board: Jacob Allgeier and Andrew Park. Find out more about them and their research interests.

Jacob Allgeier

University of Michigan, USA

Jake is an ecosystem ecologist who focuses on understanding the controls on food-web production in coastal tropical ecosystems (coral reefs, seagrass beds, and mangroves) from both top-down and bottom-up perspectives. An overarching goal of his research is to understand how humans are changing these processes to inform conservation of the many services these ecosystems provide, such as fisheries and carbon sequestration. website

Andrew Park

Odum School of Ecology, University of Georgia, USA

Andrew develops theory to explain and predict population and evolutionary biology of host-parasite interactions. He is particularly interested in the causes and consequences of parasite specificity and how natural assemblages of animal species impact the fitness of parasites. His research spans biological scales including within-host parasite dynamics, population and community ecology, and macroecology, and his research approach blends modelling and data analysis. website
