Climate Change and Plant Regeneration from Seed

Unlike animals, individual plants cannot migrate in response to a changing environment, with the key exception of the mobile seed. However, research suggests that early plant-life stages (e.g. germination, emergence) may be more sensitive to changes in climatic conditions than the adult stage. In this program, we will investigate the unique impacts of climate change on plant regeneration from seed— including seed dispersal, dormancy break, and germination—as well as the ramifications for population persistence, plant migration, and conservation.
