Senior Editors

Ken Wilson (Executive Editor)

Professor of Evolutionary Ecology, Lancaster University, UK
Ken became Executive Editor of the journal in January 2014 having been an Editor of the Journal since 2009. His main interest is the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite interactions. His research encompasses both laboratory and field-based studies, and is generally aimed at challenging theory with data. His study organisms include invertebrates, birds and mammals.

Ben Sheldon

Director of the Edward Grey Institute, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, UK
Ben joined the Editors of the journal in January 2014, having previously served as an Associate Editor. He has broad interests in evolutionary biology, ecology and behavioural ecology and most of his work uses birds as model organisms. He is particularly interested in the ecological and evolutionary causes of variation in natural populations, and in utilizing experimental manipulation with analysis of long-term data sets.

Jean-Michel Gaillard

Directeur de Recherche, Research Unit 'Biométrie et Biologie Evolutive', CNRS, University of Lyon, FR
Jean-Michel became a Senior Editor in May 2014. His research concentrates on understanding evolutionary processes in populations of large mammals from analyses of their dynamics and identifying life history strategies of vertebrates from comparative studies. He is also interested in habitat selection by vertebrates and in how these populations are responding to climate change.

Nate Sanders

Professor of Macroecology, University of Copenhagen, DK
Nate joined the Senior Editor board in September 2015. Nate’s research interests include macroecology, global change ecology, and community ecology. He tends to work on ants, but dabbles with other taxa when necessary.
