Current lab members
Jeremy Fox, Professor
His name’s on the door, so he must be in charge (?)
Rob Morgante, MSc student
Rob joined the Fox lab in Fall 2015 after finishing his honors degree at Towson State University. He’s working on how plant-plant interactions and plant-soil feedbacks affect elevational range limits in mountain plants.
Kat Jordan, MSc student
Kat joined the lab in Fall 2017, having previously done a bachelor’s in Maine in the US and then spent a couple of years away from academia. Kat has a paleontological background. She is going to identify fossil datasets to which the Price equation can be applied to estimate species selection and other macroevolutionary forces (building on some recent work of Jeremy’s: Rankin et al. 2015).
Rachel Tessier, MSc student
Rachel joined the lab in Fall 2017 after finishing her bachelor’s at LSU in the US. Rachel is interested in species distributions, range shifts, and coexistence along environmental gradients. Picture coming soon!
Christine Song, honors student
Christine is a double major, doing her Ecology honors project in the Fox lab. She’s doing a microcosm experiment on species coexistence in spatially-heterogeneous environments. Picture coming soon!
Jacob Rovere, honors student
Jacob’s Ecology honor’s project asks whether the same mechanisms that make species rare also allow them to coexist stably with more common species. He’ll be applying a recently-developed analytical approach (Yenni et al. 2017 Ecology) to long-term monitoring data from lake zooplankton communities. Picture coming soon!
