Jeannine Cavender-Bares is an outstanding evolutionary ecologist whose studies have discovered deep links between the evolutionary history and patterns of speciation of North America tree species and the dynamics and the functioning of forest ecosystems. Her work unifies the often-disparate disciplines of ecosystem ecology, physiology and evolution, and uses historical insights to provide a mechanistic basis for predicting how the forest ecosystems of North America may respond to anthropogenic forces, including climate change and habitat destruction. Her highly influential work includes four papers cited more than a thousand times each, and 24 others each cited more than 100 times.
