Alumni Distinguished Ecologist Seminar – Dr. Molly Cavaleri

October 5 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

From roots to treetops: How tropical plants respond to warming and hurricane disturbance in the Tropical Responses to Altered Climate Experiment (TRACE)

Molly Cavaleri is a forest ecophysiologist at Michigan Technological University. She has expertise in tree canopy structure and function and the cycling of carbon and water through forests. She also investigates plant thermoregulation and how temperate and tropical species acclimate to a warming world. Within the Tropical Responses to Altered Climate Experiment (TRACE), she leads the effort to explore the effects of warming and hurricane disturbance on tropical plant physiological processes like plant respiration and photosynthesis.
