Arboretum: Changing Seasons: What Happens to Plants in a Less Predictable World?

4/15/2023, 10:00 AMVIRTUAL

Changing temperatures, varied rain, snowfall, and shifting seasons seem to suggest that plants will be more stressed and less productive in the future. But there are still many unknowns. Assistant Professor of Biology, Peter Guiden will talk about his research on invasive plants, changing autumn conditions, and winter climate change affecting plants.

Pete is a community ecologist studying the interaction of living things. An important component of his research is understanding how humans alter these interactions through climate change, habitat loss, and the introduction of invasive species. He received a Ph.D. in integrative biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He enjoys bringing his research into the classroom, especially the chance to involve students in the effort to conserve and restore biodiversity on campus.
