Dr. Collins’ research interests are broad but center on examining the determinants and consequences of species diversity at local, regional, and global scales. His research employs observational, field, computational, statistical, and GIS approaches to understand issues in community ecology, conservation biology, avian ecology, and invasive species. Dr. Collins is excited to begin field studies in the Memphis area.
