Biology Seminar Series - Joan C. Dudney "The future of our forests in a rapidly changing world"
Dr. Joan Dudney is a postdoctoral fellow based at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis. She recently completed a David H. Smith Postdoctoral Fellowship at UC Davis and received her Ph.D. from the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management at UC Berkeley in May 2019. Her research is broadly focused on global change impacts in terrestrial plant communities. She uses interdisciplinary analytical approaches to disentangle the complex, interacting, and emergent relationships between plants and global change drivers, including climate change, invasive species, and altered disturbance regimes. Her research is motivated by the challenges humanity faces in an era of unprecedented environmental change.
