Simon Creer is a Professor of Molecular Ecology at Bangor University, North Wales, UK. He is interested in using molecular tools to address questions focusing on the ecology and evolution of a broad array of taxa across the tree of life. He is investigating relationships between biodiversity and ecosystem processes, using genomic, community and environmental DNA (eDNA) sources. Focal habitats have included estuarine, coastal and deep sea environments with an increasing focus on freshwater, terrestrial and the aerial biosphere in order to understand the drivers of diversity in natural communities and also how diversity is linked with ecological function, trophic relationships, environmental and human health.
