About Elizabeth Wolkovich

E. Wolkovich

Professor Wolkovich is interested in how communities assemble and dis-assemble with global change, drawing on theory from temporal community ecology with perspectives from population and ecosystem ecology, evolutionary biology, and climatology.

Much of her work to date has examined the causes and consequences of plant invasions and the effects of climate change on the temporal assembly of plant communities.

Plant phenology is strongly linked to climate, can be easily observed, and affects important ecosystem services including water supply, nutrient cycling, and carbon sequestration.
