    About This Project

    High up in California's coast redwoods, lichens vary in reproductive form throughout the canopy. The species I study produces different reproductive structures at varying vertical heights in any given redwood. Is this a strategy, a response to microclimatic factors, or something else entirely? I aim to answer fundamental questions about how organisms live and disperse throughout the canopy. This research will help us understand one of the world's most amazing and mysterious canopy ecosystems.
