Amanda J Zellmer, PhD


The broader goal of my research is to understand how spatial landscape patterns shape both ecological and evolutionary processes. In particular, I am interested in the consequences of human-mediated environmental alterations on evolutionary patterns. I investigate these processes using an integrative approach, combining molecular tools, experimental data, field surveys, and geographic information systems data.
