The Jones Lab

Plant Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

NSF grant awarded

May 10th, 2013

The lab has received NSF funding for a project entitled “Intraspecific variation in drought responses of tropical tree seedlings – consequences for species distributions under climate change”.  The work is a multidisciplinary study in collaboration with Drs. Liza Comita (Ohio State) and Bettina Engelbrecht (U. Bayeruth).  The team will be looking at the degree to which populations of tropical trees are locally adapted to moisture conditions across a rainfall gradient in Panama.  Our portion of the project will be looking at the degree to which populations are genetically structured using molecular markers.   Opportunities exist for students and volunteers in the field and lab.  Contact Andy for details.
