Jane Cowles

Position

Post-Doctoral Researcher,  University of Minnesota,  2016

Graduate student,  University of Minnesota,  2011-2014

Research

I am interested in extensions of the theoretical links between coexistence mechanisms: the reasons there are so many species to begin with, and the consequences of these coexisting species, biodiversity: for ecosystem functioning. Past projects include examining the role of plant-soil feedbacks in the diversity-productivity relationship and how increased below-ground niche use in diverse plant communities may alter the response of ecosystems to increased temperatures.
