Plant Ecology in a Changing World

The Stinson Lab's research is focused on plant species’ responses to biophysical stress and climate variation. This work is driven by theoretical questions about plant life histories, and how local processes within and among populations can help explain broader geographic distributions. Specific projects address environmental issues such as biological invasion and climate change through comprehensive and long- term experiments. The unifying goals of this work are: 1) to advance fundamental research in experimental plant population dynamics and ecology; and 2) to provide scientific guidance for restoration, management, and species conservation in a rapidly changing world.
