Robert Shriver

Assistant Professor, Plant Ecology & Population Biology


I'm a quantitative ecologist interested in understanding the mechanisms that drive plant population and ecosystem dynamics, from individual plots to landscapes. I use this understanding to anticipate and predict the impacts of environmental change in basic and applied settings. My work relies heavily on inference and statistics to synthesize data and models.

My current research topics include:

  • Demographic and environmental controls on landscape-scale resilience and restoration 
  • Demographic and population modeling methods
  • Impacts of environmental variability on population and community dynamics
