Rachael Winfree

Welcome to Rachael Winfree's Lab


Members of the Winfree lab work to better understand the ecology of pollinators and the pollination services they provide. Much of our research uses pollinators and pollination as a model system for testing ideas about the relationships among global environmental change, biodiversity, and ecosystem function. We are also beginning several newer projects on the community ecology of plant-pollinator networks, and on pollinator restoration.
