  3. Dr. Susan Carter– engineered energy & water for sustainable agriculture
  4. Dr. Kristy Kroeker– ocean acidification, eutrophication, ecosystem function
  5. Dr. Jarmila Pittermann– Climate change and response of plant vascular systems
  6. Dr. Beth Shapiro– Ancient DNA, genomics, population genetics
  7. Dr. Grant Pogson– Speciation, adaptation, natural selection, comparative population genomics
  8. Dr. Eric Palkovacs– Interactions between evolutionary processes and climate change
  9. Dr. Michael Loik– weather and climate effects on plants and ecosystems
