More about the Speaker: Dr. Turner’s research focuses on evolutionary ecology and invasion biology. I combine experimental, genomic, ancient DNA, and geo-referenced distribution data to investigate plant ecological genetics, particularly rapid adaptation to novel environments and the evolution of ecologically important traits. I am particularly interested in testing ecological-evolutionary theories that attempt to explain successful range expansion.
