About the PNAS Member Editor
Name Clark, James S.
Location Duke University
Primary Field Environmental Sciences and Ecology
Secondary Field Human Environmental Sciences
 Research Interests
The Clark lab bridges the fields of ecology, Bayesian statistics, and, bioinformatics to understand how communities of species respond to global change. Large field experiments and modeling innovations allow us to quantify the direct effects of climate change on species responses together with the indirect effects that percolate dynamically through food webs. His analyses allow us to rank each species in terms of vulnerability to climate change, in terms of fecundity, growth, and survival. His Generalized Joint Attribute Modeling (GJAM) software in R has now been installed > 30,000 times. He is currently leading a global effort on Masting Inference and Forecasting (MASTIF) to understand how climate change will affect the biodiversity of our next generation of forests and the species that depend on them.
