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

Currently studying microbial ecology, community composition of microorganisms in wetlands. I explore distribution patterns and what are the possible drivers of such distributions. My object of study Vernal Pools incorporates aquatic, sediment and endophytic microbial communities.
Biogeographic patterns in microorganisms are poorly understood, despite the importance of microbial communities for a range of ecosystem processes. Our knowledge of microbial ecology and biogeography is particularly deficient in rare and threatened ecosystems. We tested for three ecological patterns in microbial community composition within ephemer...
Earth is changing rapidly and so are many plant species’ ranges. Here, we synthesize eco-evolutionary patterns found in plant range studies and how knowledge of species ranges can inform our understanding of species conservation in the face of global change. We discuss whether general biogeographic “rules” are reliable and how they can be used to d...

In this review, we propose research focused on the study of microbial groups (archaea, bacteria, fungi, protista) within vernal pools, which are well-delimited ecosystems but can vary in many environmental characteristics. In order to understand the diversity and community composition of microorganisms within vernal pools, we suggest research based...
How ecological niche breadth evolves is central to adaptation and speciation and has been a topic of perennial interest. Niche breadth evolution research has occurred within environmental, ecological, evolutionary, and biogeographical contexts, and although some generalities have emerged, critical knowledge gaps exist. Performance breadth trade-off...
Vernal pools are ephemeral wetlands with rare and endemic plant species, in this research the distribution of nine plant species was explore along side with potential physical-chemical edaphic properties driving it’s distributions across North Western Baja California, Mexico
