Why are the Tropics So Biodiverse?

This deceptively simple question is what drives me as a biologist.

I am Rowan Schley, a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Exeter interested in the evolution, biogeography and conservation of tropical biodiversity.

My research largely centres around speciation and hybridisation in tropical trees, and as a naturalist I am fascinated by a broad range of topics from across the tree of life.
