Elsa Cleland

Elsa Cleland received her PhD from Stanford University and is currently a post-doctoral researcher at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis in Santa Barbara, California. She studies the response of plant communities and ecosystems to global environmental changes, such as climate change, nitrogen deposition, elevated CO2, and invasive species. She is also developing strategies for restoration of native plant communities in the context of present and future environmental changes. Her research has brought her to diverse ecosystems, from Artic tundra to Kenyan rainforests.
