Natalie Eva Iwanycki Ahlstrand
I am a classically trained botanist with extensive experience in field botany and herbarium & botanical garden curation. I collect botanical data derived from natural history collections, living collections, and archival records, combined with methods in citizen and community science, to investigate how change throughout the Anthropocene shapes the distribution of species, their phenotypic and genotypic traits, and interconnectedness with other species and processes over time and space (including phenological mismatches, herbivory, human use, public health, and primary productivity).
Current projects include:
