Teaching this semester

BIOL 2210/ENVS 2223. Plant Ecophysiology, L1

Examines the functional attributes of plants and the manner in which they vary across the plant kingdom by the processes of evolution and acclimation. Topics of focus include photosynthesis and protection again high-light stress, the acquisition and distribution of water and mineral nutrients, and environmental and hormonal control of development. Special topics discussed may include plant parasitism, carnivory, the origins and present state of agriculture, plant responses to global climate change, plant life in extreme environments, and the impacts of local land-use history on plant communities. Contemporary research instrumentation is used in weekly laboratories, some conducted in the field, to enable first-hand exploration of phenomena discussed in lecture. Includes an optional excursion to three of the North American deserts of the Southwest (the Sonoran and Mojave Deserts and the Great Interior Basin) during Thanksgiving vacation.

I am a broadly trained ecologist and have experience teaching and conducting research in a wide array of different fields ranging from ecotoxicology to animal and plant ecology and natural history to terrestrial and aquatic biogeochemistry to plant ecophysiology.  Currently, my research explores stress physiology in higher plants.  Specifically I study how biotic and abiotic stressors act together and independently to influence photosynthesis and water relations in plants.  In the classroom, I specialize in teaching research-based, investigative laboratories with emphases on ecology, natural history, ecophysiology, general biology, and quantitative skills development.  In recent years, I have taught laboratory courses in Plant Ecophysiology, Forest Ecology and Conservation, Community and Ecosystems Ecology, Behavioral and Population Ecology, and Introductory Biology among others.
