Elizabeth Elle

Professor, Community and Evolutionary Ecology


I am currently transitioning back to Biology after 5 years as Vice Provost. My first project is reflective; I plan to turn what students and I have learned about pollinators into practical advice for gardeners and land managers.  

In the future I expect to return to aspects of my biodiversity research program. My students and I link local and landscape-scale factors to among-site variation in pollinator diversity. We additionally measure pollen limitation of both wildflowers and crops in multiple sites and years to evaluate the contribution of native pollinator diversity to pollination services. For more information, please see my Lab Page.
