I have participated in several international working groups that have resulted in ongoing collaborations and peer-reviewed publications (several in review or in prep currently). Specifically, two collaborative projects examined the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem services (a working group at NCEAS and several working groups in a multi-university graduate seminar). The resulting multi-author papers empirically investigate the role of biodiversity in the provisioning of ecosystem services (e.g. fisheries, carbon sequestration) to improve decision-making about biodiversity conservation.    My PhD thesis extends these findings to a decision-making context, developing models and theory to identify when ecosystem services provide an economic incentive to protect biodi ...

My research interests lie in evolutionary community ecology, from micro- to macroevolutionary perspectives. I am exploring evolution in traits that are subject to selection from a variety of community members, either directly or indirectly. I argue that most traits are likely under selection from a plethora of forces, both biotic and abiotic; genetic diversity affects community composition, but the reverse is also true: diverse communities maintain genetic diversity, and the trajectory of trait evolution is often not easily predicted from simple pairwise interactions.

I am a plant ecologist with diverse, primarily conservation-oriented interests. My main research projects include: (a) assessing patterns in the geographic and taxonomic distribution of rare plants in the US and Canada; (b) predicting the effect of habitat fragmentation on distribution shift potentials of trees under global warming scenarios; and (c) monitoring of rare plants performance, including population viability analysis and predictive habitat modeling. I have ongoing long-term monitoring projects on mapped forest plot community dynamics (1986-present) and the population dynamics of the endangered tree, Torreya taxifolia, (1989-present), both in northern Florida. My research over the next several years will focus on: (a) population persistence of rare plants in California urban area ...

Ben Halpern is Director of CMAP and a Research Biologist at the Marine Science Institute. He also serves as Project Coordinator for a large project on Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM) of coastal marine systems, based at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis, and is a lead scientist for the Ocean Health Index project. Much of his research addresses issues related to Coastal and Marine Spatial Planning (CMSP), including cumulative impact and ecosystem service tradeoff assessments.
