Welcome to the research page of Darren Giling. I am an ecosystem and community ecologist with broad interests in understanding how global changes affect the structure and function of ecosystems. My research program aims to apply general ecological theory to the maintenance and restoration of environmental health.
I am currently a post-doctoral researcher at the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv). I am working with Jes Hines and Anne Ebeling to examine how changes in plant diversity influence the structural and temporal stability of consumer food webs. More information on my current project within The Jena Experiment can be found here. You can also check out other interesting research happening in our lab, the Experimental Interaction Ecology group lead by Nico Eisenhauer.
