A Two-Way Street: Eco-evolutionary Dynamics of Common Milkweed in Urban Environments

Tuesday, November 29, 2022

2 p.m. | On-site & Online

Urbanization poses one of the greatest threats to biodiversity on Earth and is altering the world’s landscapes at an unprecedented rate. While we have begun to grasp how urban conditions affect species’ population ecology and community structure, it remains unclear how city life influences species interactions as well as the evolution of urban populations. In this talk, Sophie Breitbart will discuss new findings about how urbanization shapes plant-pollinator interactions and evolution in common milkweed, a native plant of high conservation value.
