I hope to contribute to the understanding of mechanisms underlying the maintenance of species and interaction diversity in plant-pollinator communities and their assembly through time and space. Using theoretical and empirical approaches I will examine how plant-pollinator communities assemble 1) evolutionarily in a simulation-based approach, 2) though time by examining succession after fire in the Sierras, 3) though space in the island-like system of Madrean sky islands, and 4) in response to restoration in an intensely managed agricultural landscape in the Central Valley of California.
