Research Area(s): Interactive effects of disturbance and spatial structure on plant community and population dynamics, especially for several rare plant species endemic to the Lake Wales Ridge in central Florida.
Research Areas: Metacommunity ecology and ecological biogeography, including invasion biology and macroecology.
Research Areas: Conservation biology of Florida, including beach mice, gopher tortoise, and lupines.
Research: Jason is working on beta diversity: how robust is it to error, how does it respond to community assembly “filters”, and how well does it reflect community structure and habitat quality at multiple spatial scales?
Research: Modeled the potential global range of the Nile monitor and its potential food web effects for her MS (recently defended!). Hannah starts her PhD work now, aiming to work on urban/road ecology.
Research: Broadly, I am interested on the interplay between plant reproductive physiology and population level dynamics. My project aims to find novel ways to frame seed ecophysiology studies to inform plant demography models.
Research: My undergraduate research focused on the community dynamics of mangroves on South China Sea coast under human disturbance. Now I am especially interested in using models to improve our understandings on the impact of invasive species under global climate change.
Research: My goal is to explore the potential sources of dispersal of Pomacea Maculata, an invasive apple snail, through a mark-recapture project. Both ditches and seasonal flooding have been proposed as potential dispersal means.
- Nathaniel Smith is helping with an ongoing project related to roadkill across the Florida peninsula, and is exploring macroecological analyses of those data
- Priscilla Phan is helping with data and analyses of ranked species occupancy, and will soon start helping with the roadkill data, too.
