Dr. Evan C Fricke

Postdoc Research Associate
Evan Fricke

I joined the Rogers lab as a postdoc in 2015 after finishing a PhD at the University of Washington.

My interests are in community ecology, evolutionary ecology, and conservation. My work combines field experiments and quantitative models to understand the maintenance of biological diversity and predict species responses to global change. I tackle these interests through the lens of seed dispersal by studying the nature of the seed dispersal mutualism, its influence on species coexistence, and the consequences of its disruption. The long-term goals of my work are to provide empirical and conceptual advances that inform effective conservation of ecological interactions and ecosystem processes.
