Restoration ecology of ecosystems invaded by Triadica sebifera (Chinese tallow tree): theory and practice
Invasive exotic species threaten biodiversity and ecosystem functions globally, creating need for and encumbering ecological restoration. When restoring exotic plant-dominated ecosystems, reinvasion pressure is the rate ...
Specificity in the ecology and evolution of plant defense against herbivores: Identity and history
Biotic interactions can structure communities, drive succession, and account for patterns of biodiversity, yet we currently know little about how multiple biotic factors interact to influence traits in ecological and ...
VARIATION IN SPECIES INTERACTIONS AND THEIR EVOLUTIONARY CONSEQUENCES
Species interactions restrict or promote population growth, structure communities, and contribute to evolution of diverse taxa. I seek to understand how multiple species interactions are maintained, how human altered species ...
Network-guided genome-wide studies reveal a complex genetic architecture of warfarin resistance in the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus)
A fundamental challenge in evolutionary biology and medical genetic research is to connect the phenotype (a disease in humans or an adaptive trait in animals or plants) with the genotype. Using a classical example of an ...
Evolutionary responses to global change: an experimental test of the effect of altered precipitation on hybridization rates in sunflower (Helianthus)
Climate change is rapidly altering natural ecosystems. Plastic and adaptive responses to climate change (i.e., range shifts and phenology) have been widely noted across taxa. However, the effects of climate change on ...
