We study the patterns and predictors of biodiversity across environmental gradients. We work mostly with plants and pollinators in temperate and tropical forests. Our field sites span from temperate deciduous forests in the eastern United States to tropical forests of Central and South America.
Dr. Hulshof is a tropical ecologist. She studies patterns of diversity across space from tropical to temperate latitudes and through time as ecosystems respond to long-term disturbances like climate change.
