pollinators

Burkle, Laura

Assistant Professor
Ecology
Montana State University - Bozeman

My research interests include understanding the consequences of environmental factors, such as climate change, invasive species, land-use change, and nutrient availability on the biodiversity of native plants and their interactions with animal mutualists and antagonists. In particular, I use a combination of observational, experimental, and theoretical approaches to examine the structure and function of plant-pollinator interactions at the community level.

RESEARCH INTERESTS

ICN Graduate student researches microscopic pioneers of ecosystem succession

Wildfire is a common and prominent force that is constantly reshaping ecosystems in the Northern Rockies. The response of various species to wildfire has been heavily studied and is relatively well-understood. However, interactions among species after fire is a somewhat overlooked area of research.
