Marcel Holyoak's research program focuses on questions about the importance of spatial dynamics to populations and communities. He addresses theories that are central to conservation and the maintenance of biodiversity, and combines field, laboratory and theoretical components. Current topics of interest include the spatial dynamics of ecological communities (metacommunities), climate change and population and community ecology, and the conservation of tricolored blackbirds and Valley elderberry longhorn beetles.
