About Peter B. Adler

I received my A.B. in Environmental Studies from Harvard College and my Ph.D. from Colorado State University in Ecology. I am a plant ecologist interested in explaining population and community dynamics in space and time. My lab and I study the coexistence and patterns of diversity, climate change impacts on plant populations and communities, and plant-animal interactions. Much of our field work is in arid and semiarid ecosystems, but we also rely on statistical and simulation modeling techniques that apply to many ecosystems.
