Anderson, Christopher B.
Since 2000, my research has been part of broader collaborative efforts, as a leading member of an interdisciplinary group of academics, based in the Tierra del Fuego Archipelago, integrating multiple scales and disciplines and simultaneously addressing environmental questions that combine social and ecological phenomena. Consequently, I have conducted a suite of studies on sub-Antarctic natural history and community ecology, especially of sub-Antarctic birds, but the focus of my work has been 1) community and ecosystem-level approaches to understand the socio-ecological role of invasive species in a “pristine” wilderness biome and 2) sub-Antarctic stream ecosystem and food web ecology. At the same time, I have researched and implemented interdisciplinary platforms for Chile’s first Long-Term Socio-Ecological Research Network. Now, I am using these previous experiences to develop integrated socio-ecological approaches to research with an inter-institutional, international and interdisciplinary team of colleages.
