About Martha Phillips

In the realm of natural sciences, I am a plant ecologist and a wetland ecologist. My work focuses on what long-term monitoring can tell us about the stability of wetland communities, along with a more recent emphasis on invasive species (both European buckthorn, which has invaded the woods on campus, and Reed Canary Grass in the wetlands I study).

In the realm of teaching, effective science pedagogy is my primary scholarly interest. This has led me to change what I am doing in the classroom, analyze our approach to the laboratory in General Biology and design a support course for underprepared and at-risk students in General Biology.
