Rob Pringle is currently Assistant Professor at Princeton University in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. He seeks to understand how direct and indirect species interactions (predation, herbivory, competition, mutualism) combine with abiotic factors (climate, habitat heterogeneity) to determine the diversity and abundance of species at multiple scales. His method is rooted in natural history and manipulative field experiments and supplemented by whatever computational, isotopic, molecular, remote-sensing, and social-scientific approaches are necessary to understand the mechanisms underlying phenomena in nature. Most of Rob's work is done in the savannas of eastern and southern Africa. You can read more about Rob’s background and current work on his lab website.
