Moran Lab: Plant Ecology and Evolution

Welcome to the Moran lab!  We use a combination of observational and experimental ecological data, genetic markers, and statistical and simulation modeling to address a variety of questions about plant population biology.  We are particularly interested in how ecological and evolutionary processes, and their interactions, may affect responses to environmental change.

Several projects currently underway address how dispersal, local adaptation, and disturbance rate will affect responses to climate change in Sierra Nevada pines.

The questions we are investigating include:
