Luke Flory

In general, Dr. Flory research group seeks to advance general ecological knowledge of ecological communities and to answer applied questions that are relevant to natural areas management, restoration, and conservation. Research in the Flory Lab is focused broadly on understanding the ecology of biological invasions, including the community and ecosystem consequences of invasions, interactions between invasions and fire, the evolution of introduced species, and accumulation of pathogens. New projects under development will investigate the invasion risk of biofuel crops and the interaction between invasions and climate change.
