Rodolfo Dirzo specializes in the ecology of tropical ecosystems. In particular, he studies plant-animal interactions from ecological and evolutionary perspectives. Recently, he has been focusing his work on the consequences of anthropogenic impact (deforestation, fragmentation, defaunation) on tropical ecosystems, in particular in terms of the disruption of ecological processes, such as biotic interactions. He is also interested in teaching and education on the relevance of biological conservation.
