opportunities beyond the classroom
students can choose to do field research in our Field or Marine Biology Quarter, take part in our annual Biology Research Symposium or get involved with research with our amazing faculty!
creative and highly interactive, intellectual environment
students are prepared to excel in positions in academia, industry, and governmental / non-governmental organizations.
diverse faculty interests
world class faculty study a wide spectrum of research areas including, Behavior, Conservation Biology, Developmental Biology, Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, Marine Biology, Paleobiology, Plant Biology, Physiological Ecology, Theory, and Tropical Biology.
I study how tree populations exist and persist. To do this, I integrate theories and methods from ecology, evolutionary biology, and population genetics. Because genetic diversity is a key ingredient to the ability of populations to respond to environmental change, one element of my research explores how genes move within and among landscapes through pollen dispersal.
