Project Description

Dr. Bernik holds a Ph.D. and M.S. in ecology and evolutionary biology from Tulane University, and earned her B.S. in environmental biology as a Newcomb Scholar. Her dissertation research focused on the ecosystem consequences of genetic variation in salt marsh grasses. More recently, Dr. Bernik has been examining plant-microbe dynamics in petroleum-contaminated marshes as well as the socioecological responses of urban vegetation following Hurricane Katrina.
