About the Speaker:
Teresa Hollingsworth is research ecologist with the US Forest Service Pacific Northwest (PNW) Research Station and the sole forest service research branch employee stationed in Fairbanks. She is broadly interested in plant community ecology, landscape ecology, and vegetation ecology, with specific interests in vegetation patterns across large spatial scales. This includes understanding environmental gradients associated with changes in species composition and linking vegetation patterns to succession, disturbance, and potential changes in climate. She earned a B.A. in biology from the University of Colorado Boulder, a MSc in biology from Lancaster University in the United Kingdon, and a PhD in biology from the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
Browse Life Sciences SeminarsThe fall 2014 faculty coordinators for this seminar series are Tamara Harms and Robert "Trey" Coker. The staff coordinator is Marie Thoms. Beginning in 2013, many of the seminars were recorded and can be viewed online. Speakers are listed in chronological order within academic years.
**Sept-Oct 2014: Problems with the university recording system have delayed the posting of seminar recordings. We hope to have this fixed by the end of October.Beginning in 1966 and continuing today, IAB hosts a weekly seminar for faculty, students, staff and the public during the academic year. The series attracts life scientists from Alaska and around the world.
