Helen Alexander

Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Primary office:

Dr. Alexander is a population biologist and is intrigued both by the factors that affect the size and spatial distribution of populations (population ecology) and by the reasons for changes in the genetic composition of populations (population genetics). Nearly all her research has examined the population biology of plants, as she finds plant population biology to be both of intrinsic interest and relevant to many applied questions.
