Welcome to Brent Emerson's Research Group

Here you can find information about me, and my research. Since relocating to the Canary Islands in 2011 my research has become increasingly focused on using island systems to understand the origins of species diversity, the factors that have promoted it, and its ecological significance. The majority of our research is conducted in the Canary Islands, and in the photo above you can see the high-altitude habitat of Tenerife, the island where I am based. Below is a photo of Takamaka Valley on the island of RĂ©union, one of our study sites in the Indian Ocean.
