Our weekly seminar series featuring internal and external speakers in the field of ecology and evolutionary biology. This seminar will be in-person and livestreaming on Zoom (link this page).

Abstract:
Understanding the role of climatic gradients shaping species interactions and system-level structure and function has been the thrust of ecological studies. We are exploring how experimental warming and drought shapes the structure and function of montane meadows and temperate prairies. By tracking individual abundance and functional traits across plant communities, alongside ecosystem carbon dynamics, we address how climatic change influences prairies
and meadows across levels of biological organization. We find that while individuals and communities are shifting under climatic change, ecosystem functions lag behind.
