Imperial College

For several years, the lab has worked closely with Georgina Mace, Andy Purvis and Marcel Cardillo at Imperial College London's Silwood Park campus. Supertrees, comparative models to predict extinction risks from biological traits, and the relationship between biology, phylogeny and geographic range have all been subjects of collaboration.


Rich Grenyer is currently at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew in London.

Institute of Zoology

The lab has also worked closely with several researchers at the Institute of Zoology, the research division of the Zoological Society of London. Chris Carbone has been a long-term collaborator on allometries and scaling relationships. Kate Jones, having been a post-doc in both Andy Purvis's lab at Imperial and the Gittleman lab at UVA. is now a RCUK Research Fellow at the IOZ.

Universitšt Jena

Olaf Bininda-Emonds has worked extensively with John in the past, and is part of many ongoing mammalian phylogenetics projects that are common to the collaborating groups. In addition, he has recently edited a volume on supertrees, to which a number of the labs here have contributed.
