Anna is an ecologist focused on landscape-scale vegetation dynamics. Her research investigates the impacts of human land use, climate change, and environmental disturbances on dryland ecosystems.
Anna studies the effects of domestic livestock grazing, drought, climate and soil conditions, oil and gas development, and invasive plant species on native plant communities of the Colorado Plateau and on rangelands across the western US. Her work involves a wide variety of skills, from field botany to remote sensing to data management and analysis.
