How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Conference Paper
Background/Question/Methods Cottonwood trees of the southwestern USA occupy a vital niche in riparian ecosystems, and their genetic variation has been shown to be important for a myriad of dependent community members and ecosystem processes. Despite widespread historical extirpation and habitat destruction in southwestern riparian systems, cotton...
Article
Studies on the effect of plant-species diversity on various ecological processes has led to the study of the effects of plant-genetic diversity in the context of community genetics. Arthropod diversity can increase with plant-species or plant-genetic diversity (Wimp et al. in Ecol Lett 7:776–780, 2004). Plant diversity effects can be difficult to s...
Article
Full-text available
An important step in the integration of ecology and genomics is the progression from molecular studies of relatively simple model systems to complex field systems. The recent availability of sequenced genomes from key plants is leading to a new understanding of the molecular drivers of community composition and ecosystem processes. As genome sequen...
Article
Full-text available
The genus Populus consists of dioecious woody species with largely unknown genetic mechanisms for gender determination. We have discovered genetic and genomic features in the peritelomeric region of chromosome XIX that suggest this region of the Populus genome is in the process of developing characteristics of a sex chromosome. We have identified a...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Understanding how the genetic-based interactions of foundation species may affect communities and ecosystems has been identified as a major frontier in ecology. This project will examine how beavers shape the genetic structure of poplars, and thereby influence the genetic structure and genetic interactions among a much larger community of organisms...
Article
Full-text available
Can heritable traits in a single species affect an entire ecosystem? Recent studies show that such traits in a common tree have predictable effects on community structure and ecosystem processes. Because these 'community and ecosystem phenotypes' have a genetic basis and are heritable, we can begin to apply the principles of population and quantita...
Conference Paper
Comparative studies of tree species with similar distributions and ecological functions provide insight into what influences molecular and phenotypic genetic variation. Populus species are ecologically and economically important riparian trees. Along the interior Rocky Mountain and the Pacific Coast and Sierra Nevada Mountain Ranges, P. angustifoli...
