Erin is an ecologist from the Temperates who works in the Tropics (Costa Rica, México, Perú) to understand plant-animal interactions and how they scale up to affect forest communities in a changing world. She is especially interested in using manipulative field experiments to understand how seed-eating animals (vertebrates and invertebrates) interact with seeds and seedlings spanning suites of traits and how flexible ecological interactions affect plant survival and movement in biodiverse ecosystems.
