Description: Research in the Levine group focuses on two general problems: (1) the maintenance of species diversity in communities and (2) the determinants of the success and impacts of biological invasions. Current coexistence projects explore how individual variation influences the outcome of competitive interactions, the effect of fluctuating climate on plant coexistence, and the role of plant pathogens in shaping community composition. Current invasions projects explore the role of landscape patchiness in influencing the spread of exotic species, how invasions alter the connectivity among native populations, and the importance of phenology for the outcome of plant invasions. All projects combine empirical approaches with mathematical theory to achieve their aims.
