Community Assembly and Landscape Ecology

Galina Jönsson

My PhD research extends the time series of historical biodiversity data upon which future predictions are made. I am particularly interested in the impact of climate change, extreme weather events and land-use change on butterflies and moths in the UK.

I integrate data from natural history collection specimens collected over the past two centuries with more recent citizen science records in a single new analytical framework.

My PhD is funded by NERC through the Grantham Institute at Imperial College’s Science and Solution for a Changing Planet Doctoral Training Programme.
