Urban Ecology

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

Charlotte Chang

My research combines theoretical and statistical models and broadly focuses on socio-ecological systems to improve conservation science and practice. I develop models and methods for researchers and practitioners to quantify how different stakeholders interact with the environment, ranging from digital…

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…

Bree Putman

My lab takes an integrative approach in understanding animal-habitat interactions in a changing world. We are particularly interested in the effects of urban development and human activities on native wildlife. My research has primarily focused on lizards and snakes. Photos

Eric Wood

Research in my lab is centered on terrestrial ecosystems and avian communities. We use field and citizen science data, spatial analyses, and quantitative approaches to explore questions that are focused on avian ecology, urban ecosystems, and conservation. Photos

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…

Jann Vendetti

We study the eco-physiological responses of plants to environmental stresses (primarily water limitations) at the leaf and whole plant levels, with the goal of understanding how plant populations will adjust to a changing climate. Photos
