In our lab, we study plant ecological genetics. Research topics include evolutionary responses to climate change, evolution in invasive species, plant reproductive ecology, and the genetic basis of evolutionary changes in drought response and flowering time.
We and collaborators have funding from the National Science Foundation for Project Baseline- a plan to collect seeds of key species from natural populations to examine future evolutionary responses to climate change. Click on the tabs above for more info about us and our research.
