Understanding Plant Responses to Global Change: when, where, and why

Department of Biology Seminar Series
Dr. Daniel Park, Harvard University
- | Tedori Family Auditorium, Levin Building

Global change is altering how species, traits, and lineages are distributed across space and time. Here I discuss two of the most dramatic biological responses to human activity; the dislocation of plant species…



The conflict beneath your feet: Genetic tradeoffs in the plant root microbiome

Department of Biology Seminar Series
Dr. Corlett Wood, University of Pittsburgh
- | Tedori Family Auditorium, Levin Building

Genetic pleiotropy—when the same gene impacts multiple traits—is an integral part of building phenotypes from genomes. While the evolutionary significance of pleiotropy in morphological, physiological, and even…

Unexpected Diversity of Grass Abscission Zone

Department of Biology Seminar Series
Elizabeth Kellogg, Ph.D., Donald Danforth Plant Science Center
- | Tedori Family Auditorium, Levin Building

Abscission is a process in which plants shed their parts, and is mediated by a particular set of cells, the abscission zone (AZ).  In grasses (Poaceae), the position of the AZ differs among species, leading to the…
