Welcome to the Anderson Lab!

Research in the Anderson lab focuses on the processes that promote and constrain adaptive evolution in natural plant populations. We use approaches drawn from ecophysiology, population and quantitative genetics, and ecological genomics to investigate the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of plants. We are particularly interested in understanding the eco-evolutionary consequences of global change in temperate and tropical ecosystems.  Our research is motivated by theory, conservation, and patterns we observe in the natural world.
