SEAS Seminar: Forecasting Global Change Impacts on Biodiversity
Dr. Janet Franklin, Distinguished Professor and Distinguished Biogeographer Botany and Plant Sciences, University of California
Janet Franklin has been in the Department of Botany, University of California at Riverside since 2017. She was previously a Regent's Professor Schools of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning at Arizona State University where she was appointed in 2009. From 1988-2009 she was on the faculties of Geography and Biology at San Diego State University. She specializes in Landscape Ecology, Biogeography, and Geographic Information Science. Franklin’s research is focused on in the patterns and dynamics of terrestrial plant communities at the landscape scale. Her work addresses the impacts of human-caused landscape change on the environment. Human land use -- agriculture and urbanization -- and other large-scale human impacts such as climate change, and the introduction of exotic species, often interact with natural disturbance regimes such as fire, flooding and hurricanes, to shape plant community dynamics in forests, shrublands, and other ecosystems.
