Making Waves: Dr. Jonathan Tonkin

Making Waves is the podcast of the Society for Freshwater Science

Ep. 24: Using Quantitative & Computational Approaches to Explain Biodiversity, Dr. Jonathan Tonkin

Jonathan Tonkin

This month's podcast features Dr. Jonathan Tonkin discussing his recent work on explaining and predicting freshwater biodiversity patterns using quantitative and computational approaches.

Jonathan Tonkin is a postdoctoral associate at Oregon State University. His work explores the mechanisms controlling biodiversity in dynamic systems, at community, metacommunity and macroecological scales. While his research is strongly rooted in and contributes to ecological theory, he also has a strong applied focus on linking theory and management of freshwater systems.
