Dr Kyle Dexter

Lecturer in Terrestrial Vegetation Ecology


Kyle Dexter is an evolutionary ecologist working primarily on tropical trees. In this context, he and his students are usually trying to find ways to quantify the niche of tree species, making phylogenies for those trees, mapping the niches onto phylogenies and assessing how niches have evolved and changed over time. In terms of geobiology and palaeobiology, this is important, because it gives insights into past environments and the response of lineages to past environmental changes.
