My Name is Alejandro (Alejo) Ordonez, a plant macro-ecologist and global change biologist working at the intersection between paleoecology and macroecology. Currently, I am a Lecturer in Global Change Biology at the School of Biological Sciences at Queen’s University (Belfast-UK).

Before that, I was  Postdoctoral researcher at Aarhus University in Denmark at the Department of Bioscience – Ecoinformatics and Biodiversity and the University of Wisconsin – Madison in the Nelson Institute Center for Climatic Research (CCR).

I current work in close collaboration with Professor Jens-Christian Svenning from the  Department of Bioscience – Ecoinformatics and Biodiversity, John J. (Jack) Williams head of  the williams lab at UW-Madison; and Professor Han Olff head of the Conservation Ecology Group (ConsEco) part of the Groningen Institute for Evolutionary Life Sciences (GIELS).

MeMy research uses a macroecological perspective to quantify and provide scenarios that explain the how both past and current environmental changes have shaped modern plant diversity patterns and the implications of such changes for conservation. Specifically, my research focuses on the combined analysis of large-scale and a macroecological perspective to quantify and provide scenarios that explain the how both past and current environmental changes have shaped modern plant diversity patterns and the implications of such changes for conservation. Specifically, my research focuses on the combined analysis of large-scale and broad-time ecological and environmental databases, using the latest conceptual and methodological advances in macroecology, biogeography, paleoecology, spatial ecology, ecophysiology, community ecology, and phylogenetics. This research aims towards the understanding and prediction of future ecosystem behavior in the face of earth’s changing ecological, biogeochemical, climatic and disturbance gradients.
