Welcome to the Parker Lab

ecology and evolution of plant populations

We study a range of questions at the intersection of ecology and evolution, embracing both basic and applied systems.  Much of our research is focused on understanding the causes, consequences, and dynamics of biological invasions, especially the effects of species interactions (e.g. herbivory, disease, pollination, and microbial mutualisms) on plant invasions.  We work in both temperate and tropical ecosystems.  For more information about the research we do, go to the RESEARCH page and also check out what individual students and postdocs are doing on our PEOPLE page.Research.htmlPeople.htmlshapeimage_1_link_0shapeimage_1_link_1
