Research interests
Dan and his team use a combination of mathematical, statistical and computational methods, and field and laboratory data to study topics in population, community and global change ecology. Interests include: large-scale meta-population dynamics and synchrony; variation in and causes of food web and community structure; inference for mechanistic ecological models, prediction in ecology, and mechanisms governing community dynamics; landscape structure and history and their effects on biodiversity; body mass allometries and metabolic ecology; climate and other human impacts on ecosystems.

Dan Reuman is currently a James S. McDonnell Foundation Complex Systems Scholar.
