Event Details:

Climate variability can reshuffle species’ competitive hierarchies, causing shifts in “winners” and “losers” over time. Temporal variability can maintain biodiversity, but an increase in extreme events can also create threshold patterns of species loss and provide opportunities for new species to invade. In this talk I focus on the California drought, pairing field experiments and population models to understand plant community responses to the drought and develop management strategies for future change.
