Principal Investigator: Dr. Jessica Forrest

WANTED!! We are looking for a summer student (short-term, mid-May to mid-July 2018) to help out on a project with strawberry pollination – here for more on salary, dates, requirements, etc.

We study the evolutionary ecology of plantpollinator interactions. Our research explores how pollinators and animal-pollinated plants are coping in a world that is getting hotter and more densely populated by humans. We are also interested in some basic aspects of bee biology and pollination ecology (click here to learn more). Current student projects deal with floral evolution, wild bees in agricultural landscapes, pollen specialization in solitary bees, and the pollination ecology of spring ephemerals.
