Links between traits and Performance

We develop demographic models that allow us to understand how the environment influences population change over time.


The ultimate aim is to examine how plant traits interact with environmental properties to influence fitness.I developI 

Plasticity and intraspecific variation

We are interested in the mechanisms that constrain or enhance trait variation within species, and how this influences ecological processes, such as invasion.

By clarifying links between trait variation and ecological processes, we hope to improve future conservation efforts.​

economics and ecology

We apply principles from economics to understand how plants balance inputs of resources to maximize their fitness.

We do this by using a combination of fieldwork, greenhouse work and manipulative field experiments.
