SBE Seminar Series Spring 2023: Lauren Azevedo-Schmidt

March 10 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Dr. Lauren Azevedo-Schmidt, UMaine School of Biology and Ecology, and Climate Change Institute

Abiotic and biotic processes influence plant and insect herbivore species, a pattern that has been occurring across millions of years. By bridging the gap between modern and paleoecological studies we can more accurately root our understanding of community dynamics against the backdrop of the geologic record. This is especially important given current global change, which is occurring at a rate far faster than what has been observed within the geologic record.

Dr. Lauren Azevedo-Schmidt received her both M.S. in Botany and her Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of Wyoming Laramie, studying with Dr. Ellen D. Currano. Her postdoctoral research will focus on using both modern and fossil information to understand why fern communities were successful following the K-Pg (Cretaceous-Paleogene) extinction event.
