Theoretical, spatial, and empirical ecology of plants, particularly tropical trees


Dr. Beckman's research investigates interactions between plants and their environment occurring over multiple scales and examines the role of these interactions in limiting plant populations and maintaining biodiversity. Many of these interactions are disrupted by global change, and she examines the consequences of these disruptions for plant communities and ecosystem functions. She uses a combination of empirical and quantitative approaches to address her research questions. Her lab's aim is to conduct transdisciplinary and actionable research that contributes to solutions of socio-environmental problems.
