Ecological and evolutionary patterns

Dr. Bonachela is a theoretical biologist interested in different ecological and evolutionary patterns that emerge in biological systems across spatial and temporal scales. He is especially interested in the relationship between these patterns and the presence of ecological transitions, for example what the patterns mean for the robustness and resilience of the ecosystem to environmental change. Some of Juan’s main foci of research are marine phytoplankton, bacteria, and viruses, specifically how phenotypic plasticity affects evolution and vice versa.
