“Climate change and the geographic range of species: thoughts from long-term studies of California annual plants”

 

Monica A. Geber is an  Associate Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Cornell University.  She received a PhD in Population Biology and Genetics from the University of Utah and did a Post Doctoral Fellowship at Indiana University.  She is the current Co-editor in Chief of the American Naturalist and has an extensive publication list.

 

 “My research falls into three areas at the interface of ecology and evolutionary biology. First, my main focus is on the genetic and ecological limits to adaptive evolution. Second I am interested in the direct and indirect links between species diversity and community change, on the one hand, and genetic diversity and evolution within species, on the other. Finally, I have had a long-standing interest in interactions between plants and their pollinators and the consequences of these interactions for plant mating system evolution. “
