Dr. Amy Dunham

Associate Professor
Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology 
Rice University 

Dr. Amy Dunham is primarily interested in the interactions of species in complex tropical forests and especially in relation to anthropogenic disturbances.  However, her research spans a wide range of  topics in ecology, evolution and conservation biology, from geographic and phylogenetic patterns of trait distributions and community assembly to impacts of extinction and invasion on trophic cascades and ecosystem processes, to studies of global climate change impacts on demography and species interactions.
