McGill seeks to understand what influences the distribution and abundance of organisms to develop predictive theories of how this will change under anthropogenic climate and landcover change. He studies biodiversity over large areas of space and periods of time to predict how species will respond to climate change and to measure human-driven land cover changes on community structure.
