Kyle A. Palmquist, Principal Investigator
Kyle is a plant ecologist interested in the ecological processes that influence and maintain plant biodiversity. She is particularly interested in asking ecological questions over large spatial scales, ultimately to inform landscape conservation.

Kyle received her BS in Biology and Environmental Studies from the College of Charleston and her PhD in Ecology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Prior to joining the Department of Biological Sciences at Marshall University in January 2019, she was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Wyoming working jointing with William Lauenroth and John Bradford. Besides thinking about plants and climate change, Kyle enjoys running, hiking, cross-country skiing, traveling, and cooking.
