Earth is experiencing more rapid changes now than at any time in the past ten thousand years. I am investigating the resulting trajectories of change in biodiversity and Earth’s life-support systems. Looking forward, a key challenge for humanity is to increase food production, while at the same time securing other vital societal benefits from rural landscapes. Meeting this challenge requires improved understanding of how agricultural practices affect yields, biodiversity, and ecosystem services. My research thus focuses on developing innovative solutions for reconciling conservation activities with food production practices. My research program has four thrusts.

First, I develop and apply ecological theory to understanding and managing biodiversity in human-dominated landscapes. Second, I quantify the effects of alternative agricultural practices on biodiversity-mediated ecosystem services to people. Third, I investigate how identifying tradeoffs among biodiversity and ecosystem services can inform development of multifunctional landscapes. Finally, I work with international experts to synthesize science and guide policy.

The estrangement persisted throughout Kittel’s life until he died in 1965. Years...»
