Yann Hautier is an assistant professor in Ecology and Biodiversity at Utrecht University. His research focuses on (1) establishing the mechanisms of change in plant diversity in response to global environmental changes, (2) determining the consequences of changes in plant and soil diversity on the functioning of ecosystems and the stable provision of ecological services and (3) predicting the impact of human-driven global environmental changes on biodiversity and the functioning of ecosystems. The central theme of his work is testing ecological theory, advancing fundamental mechanisms, and providing guidance for the conservation of biodiversity. He has published more than 60 articles in leading journals, including Nature, Science, Nature Ecology & Evolution, and Nature Communications. His work has been cited over 7500 times, and he was listed in the 2018 Highly-Cited Researchers List.
