New Subject Editor Bo Dalsgaard6 November 2015
Bo Dalsgaard is an Assistant Professor at the Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate (CMEC) at the Natural History Museum of Denmark, University of Copenhagen (Denmark). In 2009, Bo received his PhD in Ecology from Aarhus University (Denmark). He then worked two years as a Danish Council for Independent Research sponsored postdoctoral researcher at University of Cambridge (UK), then two years as a Carlsberg Foundation sponsored postdoctoral researcher at CMEC at the Natural History Museum of Denmark, before becoming an Assistant Professor at CMEC in April 2014.
Bo has a wide interest in community ecology, ecological networks, island biogeography, biogeography, macroecology and conservation. He is especially interested in geographical patterns of species interaction networks and biodiversity. A main aim is to determine how network structure and biodiversity may interrelate and be influenced by environmental factors, such as contemporary and historical climate. Most of his work focuses on mutualistic plant-animal interactions, notably hummingbird-plant interactions in the New World. However, he also work with a wide range of other systems, for instance, island biogeography of birds and global human linguistic diversity.
