Andrew Gonzalez

Liber Ero Chair in Conservation Biology
Dr. Gonzalez is co-Chair of GEO BON, Liber Ero Chair in Conservation Biology, and founding director of the Quebec Centre for Biodiversity Science. Throughout his studies, he has made research contributions to pollinator behaviour in honey bees, the effects of habitat fragmentation and corridors on species diversity, the causes and consequences of extinction, and the extension of metacommunity theory to the field of biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. His major research interests include: 1) biodiversity loss as a form of global change, 2) species' persistence in fluctuating and changing environments, 3) evolutionary rescue and its consequences for diversity, and 4) links between biodiversity change, sustainability and human wellbeing. He has spoken at the World Economic Forum in Davos on the sixth mass extinction and resilient ecosystems for urban sustainability. Dr. Gonzalez is also a co-lead of the Adapting Urban Environments for the Future theme of McGill's Sustainability Systems Initiative, and a co-founder of a spin-off company called Eco2Urb.
