Marc Cadotte

Marc Cadotte

Assistant Professor, Departments of Biological Sciences, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Toronto, Canada
Marc studies the assembly, dynamics and functioning of ecological communities. To understand mechanisms driving coexistence, he uses modelling, experimental and observational methods in aquatic, microbial and plant systems. Marc also employs phylogenetic methods where evolutionary relationships are used as a surrogate representing species differences. He uses these basic ecological methods to provide scientific rationale for informed conservation management and policy.

Jos Barlow

Reader in conservation science, Lancaster Environment Centre, Lancaster University, UK
Jos’s research examines biodiversity responses to environmental change in tropical ecosystems. It aims to understand how human-dominated tropical forest landscapes can be managed to conserve biodiversity and ecosystem services, while maintaining the livelihoods of rural peoples. He has worked on a wide range of taxa, and has studied ecological issues in many different management systems, including selectively logged native forests, agroforests, fast-growing timber plantations, slash-and-burn, cattle ranching and mechanised agriculture.

Nathalie Pettorelli

Research fellow, Institute of Zoology, Zoological Society of London, UK
The core of Nathalie’s published research focuses on climate change and its effects on animal ecology and ecosystem functioning.
Extensive experience with remote sensing data and its usefulness in ecology and conservation also drives her interest in promoting a better integration of satellite-based data in global monitoring programs.

Phil Stephens

Senior Lecturer, School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, University of Durham, UK
Phil is interested in the use of predictive population ecology to inform biodiversity conservation and wildlife management. To that end, his research ranges from population monitoring, dealing with uncertainty in population data, and identifying the drivers of population change, to natural selection as a predictive concept in population biology. He is also interested in species interactions – especially predator-prey interactions and their energetic underpinnings.

Martin Nuñez

Researcher, CONICET (National Scientific and Technical Research Council), Argentina and Professor, Universidad Nacional del Comahue, Argentina
Martin’s research interests include biological invasions, conservation, mycorrhizal ecology and forestry. He has worked in different parts of the Americas focused mostly on non-native plant species, their interactions with the local flora and fauna, and the problems they generate. He is now also working on different aspects of plant–soil biota interactions from basic and applied perspectives.

Call for new Associate Editors

We are currently seeking new Associate Editors for Journal of Applied Ecology and invite anyone interested in joining the board to contact the editorial office (admin@journalofappliedecology.org) with your CV or link to your institutional/personal webpage and a brief outline of your reviewing or editorial experience. APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED.

We are looking for researchers with a strong publication record and background in applied ecological research. Some editorial experience, links with practitioners and experience of publishing in or reviewing for Journal of Applied Ecology is desirable.

We are especially interested in receiving applications from those working in non-academic institutions as well as from ecologists from outside of Europe and the USA.

• An expert in plant-insect interactions, with a preference for research in pollination
• An expert in grasslands with expertise in restoration and ecosystem function
• An expert in aquatic ecosystems, freshwater and fisheries with strong applied experience and ideally with connections to practitioners
• An expert in biocontrol, pests and pathogens
• An expert in forestry and management of forested areas
• An expert in the applied ecology of soil biota
• An expert in applied ecology with an interest in the social and economic influences of the management of biological resources

If you are an early career researcher and would like to gain some editorial experience you may be interested in our mentoring opportunity. More details are available here.
