Research

research overview

  • Dr. McCain's research is focused on understanding of the mechanisms producing and maintaining patterns of biodiversity and the related patterns of species distribution, abundance, and range limits. The overarching goal of my research is to contribute to the development of quantitative, testable theories applicable to both the advancement of ecology and evolution, and the improvement of our conservation strategies in the face of climate change and other anthropogenic habitat changes.

keywords
