JohnI use bioinformatical and analytical approaches to study biodiversity and community interactions. This includes the analysis of large quantities of molecular data derived from high-throughput sequencing of environmental samples. I also design and implement randomisation-based assembly-rules analyses. I currently split my time between the Plant Ecology Laboratory and the department of Zoology (also University of Tartu). My zoological research includes phylogeography, animal behaviour and wildlife management. See my CV and full publication list in the Estonian Research Portal.
