Wisconsin Ecology 22nd Annual Spring Symposium



Dr. Susan P. Harrison

We are pleased to host Susan Harrison,Ph.D. Professor in the Department Science & Policy at the University of California–Davis, as keynote speaker at the Wisconsin Ecology Spring Symposium on April 10 and 11, 2019.

Dr. Harrison studies the processes that shape and maintain plant species diversity at the landscape scale, where small-scale forces such as competition and facilitation interact with large-scale forces such as niche evolution and dispersal. Much of Harrison's recent work focuses on the impacts of climatic drying on grassland community diversity. Click here to read more about Dr. Harrison and her research.
