Assistant Professor of Biology

The ecology of clonal plant systems. We look at the common role this form of asexual reproduction plays in population and community dynamics such as invasiveness, recovery from disturbance, and acclimation to environmental heterogeneity

Damon P. Gannon

Damon P. Gannon

Director of the Bowdoin Scientific Station on Kent Island and Adjunct Assistant Professor of Biology

My students and I study the ecology of intertidal organisms, including predation, competition, habitat selection, and community responses to disturbance (harvesting and bioinvasions).  This work takes place mostly on Kent Island (Bay of Fundy, Canada), site of the Bowdoin Scientific Station
