Angelita Ashbacher

I am a third year graduate student in the Fox lab at UC Santa Cruz. I study plant-pollinator interactions in native wildflower communities of California. I am currently developing a pollination network for the central coast and designing experiments to test impacts of increased temperatures on food reward quality and quantity for native species that are vital for maintaining the structure of diverse wildflower communities.

I am always looking for good volunteers to help with fieldwork. If you are interested in learning about California wildflowers and the species that pollinate them all while gaining research experience, please send me an e-mail
