Dr. Madli Jõks

Research Fellow in Macroecology

I study large-scale biodiversity patterns, especially global scale patterns. During my PhD studies, I investigated the evolution of biodiversity in various island habitats where species dispersal is hindered due to spatial isolation, such as oceanic archipelagos, as well as in fragmented old forests within other habitats. I am interested in exploring nature using technically challenging methods, and in my work, I employ computer simulations, remote sensing data, and novel data analysis techniques.
