- Studying the effects of climate change-induced variation in the phenology of plant-insect interactions on herbaceous plant distributions
Using observational and experimental laboratory and field techniques, computational analyses, and ecological niche modeling, I address questions such as:
1. How does fine-scale variation in species interactions scale up to impact regional distributions of species?
2. How does climate change impact the timing of mutualistic and antagonistic insect-plant interactions across environmental gradients?
3. How do climate change-exacerbated natural disturbances impact composition of forest insect communities and interactions between host trees and phytophagous insects?
