I am interested in what causes limits to adaptation in nature, and how these drive the formation and structure of ecological communities, as well as their resilience in the face of environmental change. Understanding and predicting evolutionary responses demands research into population ecology and genetics, life history evolution, as well as genome evolution and speciation.

Kate Jones is a world-leading biodiversity modeller known for her innovative, broad cross-disciplinary research in the linkages between global change, biodiversity and ecosystem services, winning the Philip Leverhulme Prize for outstanding contributions to Zoology in 2008. Kate holds scientific advisory positions for a number of national and international conservation charities and was the Chair of The Bat Conservation Trust from 2010-2015. She also directs a number of citizen science projects monitoring biodiversity globally. Kate is a passionate science communicator and regularly appears in the national and international media, including the Life Scientific on BBC Radio 4 in 2015.

I work mainly on assessing human and climatic impacts on some of the world’s most important freshwater ecosystems, including Lake Baikal and the Aral Sea in central Asia, and the Okavango Delta in southern Africa. Key to much of this work is the use biological organisms and stable isotopes to reconstruct past environments.
