Sara Kuebbing Ph.D., Assisstant Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh, will give a presentation on her research into plant invasion ecology.
Dr. Kuebbing is a plant ecologist studying biological invasions and their impacts on native plant communities and ecosystems. Her research program seeks to understand the role of plant interactions in influencing plant community composition, shaping the links between plant community composition and the functions of invaded ecosystems, and predicting which nonnative, invasive species are likely to have the largest impact. Because invasive species are an environmental management concern, she designs research that can inform invasive management policy and practice.
Dr. Kuebbing received her Ph.D. in 2014 with Dan Simberloff at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, performed her postdoctoral studies with Mark Bradford at Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.
