Hey there! I am Mark Genung, a Post-doctoral Scientist andin the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville where I am a member of Jen Schweitzer and Joe Bailey‘s community and ecosystem genetics lab. In August of 2014 I will move to Rutgers University to start a post-doc in Rachael Winfree‘s lab, where I will examine whether pollinator species richness affects the stability of pollination services, among other projects.
My research program focuses questions at the intersections of community, ecosystems, and evolutionary ecology. I use a combination of field, common garden, and greenhouse experiments to address how variation (expressed at many different levels from genes to large phylogenetic groups) affects the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem function.
