Margaret Mayfield

Margaret Mayfield is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her research focuses on the ways humans impact native plant communities and how native plant and insect communities can be incorporated into agricultural landscapes both for conservation and to provide economically beneficial services to farmers. Margaret works with a diversity of plant communities but for the past 7 years her research efforts have focused primarily on plants in the Neotropics. Most of Margaret’s research has taken place in the fragmented forests of southern Costa Rica, but she also has experience with plant conservation in Ecuador, Bolivia and Brazil.
