Previous lab members
Madison Hoffacker was an undergraduate researcher from 2010-2013. She is studying germination traits of
native and invasive species of California serpentine grassland. In particular, can you water the serpentine grassland
in the summer to trick invasive species into germinating early? Is this a viable restoration strategy for these invaded systems?
Matt Bernhardt was an undergraduate researcher from 2011-2012. He conducted a survey of Weed Management Area chairs in California to determine the impact of state budget cuts on weed management. His results are published in Bioscience (Funk et al. 2013).
Kim Cyphers was an undergraduate researcher from 2008-2010. She studied how leaf and soil traits influence litter decomposition.
Lori Glenwinkel was a research technician in the lab from 2008-2010. She is currently pursuing
her PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology at Columbia University.
Ginny Zachary was a research technician in the lab from 2007-2008. She is currently pursuing a degree in nursing at CSU Los Angeles.
