Kyle Dexter is a Reader in Terrestrial Vegetation Ecology in the School of GeoSciences. He is the Deputy Director of the E4 Doctoral Training Partnership and co-Director of the Centre for Adapting to Changing Environments.
Dexter's research group focuses on how vegetation in the dry tropics will shift under impending environmental change. Savannas are threatened by woody encroachment and dry forests are threatened by degradation. He aims to understand the the future of these poorly studied biomes.
Dexter runs a first year undergraduate course in field ecology in Scotland and contributes additional teaching on ecological statistics and vegetation ecology.
