Project Title: Rare disturbance events and their impact on evolutionarily stable strategies of forest trees in competition for light, water, and nutrients

Caroline Farrior (Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton, 2012) examined the roles of frequency, severity and predictability of wind storms and drought in determining properties of forest stands. After completing her fellowship, Farrior accepted a position as as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of Texas at Austin.
