Dov's work examines species’ responses to climate change, the impacts of species invasions, the timing of species extinctions, and the mertis of alternative conservation strategies.
Voss Postdoctoral Fellow
Sarah's work in the Sax Lab examines how paleoecological and modern data can be used in complimentary ways to understand the factors that limit species distributions and how species will respond to future changes in climate.
Emily's work uses epiphyte species distributed along elevational gradients as a model, experimetnal system to advance our basic understanding of species' responses to climate change, but also to inform tropical, montane conservation efforts.
Julie is interested broadly in species' responses to climate change and species invasions. She has begun work exploring the factors that limit the geographic distributions of plants, using naturalized distributions as a novel source of insight on the importance of climate in setting range boundaries.
Birch spent the summer traveling in the eastern US, where she cataloged the distribution and status of plants native to the US, but growing beyond their native range boundaries. Her senior thesis will use these data to inform how native species will respond to future climate change.
Emma spent last summer studying epiphyte distributions in Costa Rica. Her senior thesis is exploring the relationships between local and regional abundance and distribution of these species, with an aim of advancing ecological theory that can inform conservation efforts.
