Dr. Margaret Evans

Assistant Research Professor, EEB and Dendrochronology (Tree Ring Lab)
Research Interests: 

I am a plant population biologist with research focused in two areas: 1) conservation ecology, including the development of general tools for population and range modeling, as well as building knowledge about particular rare species, and 2) evolutionary ecology, including bet hedging, life history evolution, breeding system evolution, and comparative analyses of the evolution of climatic niches. Since starting a joint appointment split between the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research and the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, my research is focused on building process-based models to forecast how western U. S. tree species will respond to climate change. This involves the integration of large data sets (Forest Inventory and Analysis, the International Tree Ring Data Bank, and the Botanical Information and Ecology Network) via hierarchical Bayesian statistical models.
