Pamela Kittelson

Faculty

My work as a teacher and scholar is driven by curiosity in the processes that make life on this planet so unique. I take great joy in collaborating with students on research and in classes I teach. I love opportunities for experiential education, where we learn together in the field by observing patterns, asking questions and collecting interesting data.  My research focuses on how habitat fragmentation affects plant populations, specifically examining how genetic variation and plant traits might change with population size.  I also am interested in restoration ecology and how invasive species alter relationships in plant communities.  I do most of my work in grasslands including California, Montana and Minnesota prairies.  Students from my lab publish work that helps land managers define strategies for maintaining plant diversity.  Please see my homepage: http://homepages.gac.edu/~pkittels/
