|Population and community ecology, conservation biology. Areas of particular interest include population modeling, ecology of invasions, and plant/pollinator interactions.|
|Conservation biology (especially for plants and insects), causes and effects of biological invasions, and pollination ecology. Thesis students in my lab carry out projects on a wide range of topics, but some examples of ongoing opportunities include research on:
Interactions between native annual plants and invasive grasses at the Bernard Field Station.
Effects of invasive herbivores and climate change on rare plant populations and communities of the California Channel Islands.
Changes in pollination biology of native plants resulting from habitat fragmentation and introduced bees.
Modeling extinction risk of rare species.
