 Current Students/Postdocs

 Alissa Brown pic (2)

Alissa Brown (PhD, Biology, White/Peet)

Interests: patterns of biodiversity and species coexistence. I use mapped forest plots in the NC Piedmont to examine conspecific negative density dependence in temperate trees. I’m also using CVS data to evaluate patterns of biodiversity across the southeastern U.S.

B.S. in Environmental Science, Indiana University, 2005
M.S. in Biology, San Diego State University, 2012

E-Mail: alissab@live.unc.edu

Neal Geoffrey

Geoffrey Neal (MS, Ecology, Weakley)

Interests: Plant ecology; disjunctions, vicariance, invasibilty

B.S. in Mathematics, North Carolina State University, 1988

E-Mail: geoffrey@email.unc.edu

Derick  Poindexter (PhD, Biology, Weakley)

Interests: plant systematics, floristics (particularly of the Southeastern US), plant biogeography, ecology, and conservation biology. In essence, I’m intrigued by the questions: “What occurs where and why?”

A.A. & A.S., Surry Community College, 2002
B.A. Biology, Berea College, 2004
M.S. Biology, Appalachian State University, 2006
