Project Title: Community genetics and global change: scaling up genotype-level plant responses to population and community dynamics
As a NIMBioS postdoctoral fellow, Emily Moran (Ph.D. Biology, Duke Univ., 2010) investigated the impact of increasing CO2 on inter-genotype competition and plant-insect interactions in aspen forests in order to develop a modeling framework that could be applied to other forest communities. Upon completing her fellowship at NIMBioS, Dr. Moran accepted a position as postdoctoral researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich.
