Why Geography Matters to Ecologists: Geographical Patterns of Biodiversity
Thursday, March 29th in the Burchfiel Geography Building Room 301. Reception with cookies and coffee to start at 3:30, talk from 4:00-5:00.

In this talk, I will provide an overview of my research interests, focused on using ecological niche modeling and spatial data to study species’ distributions. To
illustrate my research interests, I will discuss studies (in progress or completed) aiming to detect plant species richness, plant traits, and estimate the
potential distribution of invasive species. In the last part of my talk, I will introduce the Spatial Analysis Lab, an interdisciplinary recharge center established last year in NIMBioS through a partnership between Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Geography, NIMBioS, and the College of Arts and Sciences.
