Introductory Biology

Joel Abraham

Our lab focuses work in two main areas: 1) supporting biology learning at the K-16 level through computer-based instruction and assessment and support of student psychosocial factors and 2) studying edaphic factors in plant invasion success in arid and semi-arid…

Anna Bowen

I am a new plant ecology professor at Whittier College. My research focuses on terrestrial invasive plant ecology and on better understanding the mechanisms for how invasive plants enter undisturbed forest ecosystems. In the past I have used niche modeling…

Kinsey Brock

Our lab studies how human activities, urbanization, and climate change shape reptile and amphibian biology. We are particularly interested in behavioral, morphological, physiological, and genetic changes in herps associated with city landscapes. Photos

Amanda Fisher

I’m a plant systematist and most of my work has been estimating molecular phylogenies of grasses and Acanthaceae. I’m currently collaborating on a project to study pollinator mediated selection on flower shape in Justicia (Acanthaceae). I am curator of the…

Anna L. Jacobsen

Research in the Jacobsen lab focuses on plant vascular structure and function using methods in plant anatomy, ecology, and physiology. We often employ a comparative community approach to test long standing questions in plant evolution and ecology, with a focus…

Javier Monzon

Research in the Monzón Laboratory focuses on the ecology, behavior, and evolution of animals living on the edge. We examine the ecological causes and evolutionary consequences of geographic range limits in various animals. We also investigate the genetic differences that…

Dave Smith

I study patterns of genetic variation in plants and the causes of that variation. Further, I study the consequences of plant genetic variation on the surrounding community. For example, I am currently setting up an experiment to study genetic variation…

Dustin VanOverbeke

I am an entomologist with a broad interest in insect-plant interactions. Current research involves monitoring native pollinator assemblages and improving pan trapping methods to increase the abundance and diversity of specimens. Other work involves monitoring pollinator as well as ground-dwelling…
