Affiliation: Biology
Associate Professor of Biology

Vladimir Douhovnikoff teaches classes in ecology, conservation, and ecological genetics, with particular emphasis on forest and riparian ecosystems.

His research explores plant ecology using a combination of field sampling and molecular ecology tools to study clonal plants at the population and community scale. Representing a large proportion of the planet’s flora and naturally resulting in genetic replicates across heterogeneous environments, clonal plants are an excellent model species for the study of ecological dynamics particular to the plant kingdom.
