Project Description

Assistant Professor of Biology at Pomona College and Director of the Bernard Field Station, an academic resource for the Claremont Colleges, Claremont, CA

Dr. “Marty” Meyer’s research interests are in the fields of conservation biology, invasion biology, biogeography, and ecology including aspects of population, community and ecosystem ecology. Thus, his research profile is rather diverse. Marty’s main interest is to understand how and why the species composition of local biotas is changing, and how such changes directly and indirectly affect ecosystem-level processes and properties. Marty intends to address a variety of ecological and evolutionary questions throughout his carrier, but he expects most of his future work as Director of the Bernard Biological Field Station to be focused on the preservation and restoration of coastal sage scrub ecosystems.
