Dr. Erica Case
Dr. Erica Case | is broadly interested in plant conservation and changes in vegetative communities over time. For her dissertation, she studied the effects of invasion and removal treatments on resident community composition. She also used demographic models and controlled burns to evaluate the effects of fire on the serpentine endemic mustard, B. constancei. As a post-doc, she is interested in the relationship between natural history (habitat, range size, etc.) and population demography in rare plant species at the Ash Meadows Wildlife Refuge (Nevada).
