Research

Professor Jay Malcolm specializes in wildlife (especially small mammal and insect) ecology, conservation biology, community ecology, tropical ecology, and landscape ecology. His research interests include small mammal and insect ecology and bio-geography, diversity and abundance of tropical organisms, the impacts of human‑induced landscape changes (especially forest management) on diversity and ecological processes, and relationships between landscape structure and biological diversity. He has examined forest fragmentation and edge effects, the impacts of global warming on ecosystems, and mammalian adaptations to arboreality and seasonality.
