Nighttime ecology is the study of the abundance, distribution and interactions of species during the night. At least as a coherent field, the ecology of the nighttime has been much neglected to date. This is likely a consequence both of our own biases as a diurnal species, and the technological challenges posed by working in the nighttime environment.

Present topics we are working on include:

Ecological impacts of artificial light

Macroecology of the nighttime
