Ph.D. Students Wanted! Ecology and evolution of plants and plant-animal interactions

My lab is broadly interested in the ecology and evolution of plants and
their communities, often focusing on plant-animal interactions such as
herbivory, seed predation, and seed dispersal.  We use a combination of
field, greenhouse, phylogenetic, experimental evolution, and molecular
genetic approaches.  Students are expected to develop their own
independent projects, but will also have opportunities to collaborate on
NSF-funded investigations of hybridization in wild sunflowers and the role
of genetic diversity in invasions.  The lab is also starting new projects
in desert and alpine ecosystems at the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge
and the Rocky Mountain Biological Lab.  Students will be a part of a
dynamic group of plant biology, ecology, and evolution researchers at UNM.
