Join us for a virtual talk by Dr. Desiree Narango 

Dr. Narango studies how plants and animals interact with each other, their environment, and with us. Most of her work takes place in novel landscapes significantly altered by people, such as urban forests, residential yards, and farmland. Her interdisciplinary work uses field, lab, and modeling-based approaches to answer questions that span across scales and taxa. Her ultimate goal is to find data-driven conservation solutions for land managers to help preserve biodiversity in a rapidly changing world.
