Emily's research focuses on predicting the effects of climate change on tropical montane forests. Currently, she studies a suite of epiphytic plant species across elevational gradients in the mountains of Costa Rica. She is combining information on species distributions, climate, physiology, and transplant experiments to precisely measure how these species tolerate different climates. In addition to making specific forecasts for an important component of tropical biodiversity, Emily's work aims to contribute broader insight for the future of these ecosystems and their conservation.
