Adam focuses on species interactions, community structure, and the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functions and services. In particular, he is interested in understanding how anthropogenic disturbance across spatial scales governs diversity and interactions, above and belowground and at trophic levels directly (herbivores, pollinators) and indirectly (predators, parasites) connected to plants.
