Prof. Jake Alexander

Two of the most pressing challenges for environmental biologists are forecasting the spread of non-native invasions and predicting the response of native species to global climate change.  My research explores leading questions at the intersection of these global challenges, rooted in a fundamental curiosity in the ecological and evolutionary factors that shape species distributions. My current work focuses on three core questions:

  •     What limits the spread and impacts of invasive species?
  •     How do species interactions shape climate change responses?
  •     Can species evolve to rapidly changing climate?
