How will California’s grassland-shrubland interface be affected by a warming climate? Given my interests in plants, water, meteorology, and vegetation change over time, I am approaching this broad question through a multifaceted research strategy with a focus on the water relations physiology of Baccharis pilularis (coyote brush, Asteraceae), a common shrub native to California. The three areas of my research include investigations in 1) intraspecific variation of B. pilularis water relations, 2) ontogenetic effects of seasonal B. pilularis water relations and water sources, and 3) seasonal water relations and water sources of B. pilularis during seedling establishment when competing with neighbors in high- and low-fog coastal grasslands.
