Dr. Karen Samis is an evolutionary ecologist interested in the evolutionary, ecological and molecular genetic factors associated with local adaptation in plants. She is particularly interested in the role these factors play in determining the extent and limits to species’ geographical distributions, and uses field biology and molecular genetic tools to ask how variation in habitat, plant and population level dynamics affect the limits to species’ geographical distributions.
