Speaker: Aurèle Toussaint is a research fellow in the Macroecology group at the University of Tartu. He is working on the functional diversity and its vulnerability in a context of biodiversity crisis. Using databases of traits for more than 80,000 species across five taxonomic groups (plants, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and freshwater fishes), he will show how the loss of vulnerable species will affect the functional diversity globally and across biogeographical realm.
