Phenology and life history variation

We combine experimentation, observation, and analytical modeling to investigate species-specific and community-level patterns of variation in phenology. This work, conducted at my long-term study site near Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, focuses mainly on factors influencing the timing of expression of life history traits related to seasonal growth onset and flowering in tundra plants; timing of migratory arrival and offspring production by caribou; and phenological interactions between plants and large herbivores, including both caribou and muskoxen.
