Research

Stuart Pimm’s research crosses a wide range of disciplines including conservation biology, ornithology and climate change. Despite the broad swathe of interests, the work has a single-minded focus: to use science to support conservation decisions and policy.

Such a goal necessitates a cross-disciplinary approach so Dr. Pimm’s work integrates these disparate threads. For example, his work on bird distribution in the coastal Atlantic rainforests of Brazil helped guide decisions about preserving the last few remnants of original forest.
