Carol Boggs
Professor, Department of Biology
Bing Director, Program in Human Biology
Clayman Institute Faculty Voice and Influence Fellow, 2011-2012

Carol Boggs' research interests include evolutionary, functional, and behavioral ecology, with applications to conservation and environmental issues. She is interested in how organisms and populations respond to environmental variation in ecological and/or evolutionary time, in the dynamics of small populations, and the effects of species invasions.  Her work ranges from the individual to the species' interaction levels, using tools from physiology, behavior, ecology, genetics and evolution. Applications to conservation and other environmental problems are incorporated into these studies.  Dr. Boggs’ research uses butterflies to understand how environmental variation affects reproduction, population size, and species interactions over ecological and evolutionary time. The aim is to better understand the effects of both natural and anthropogenic environmental changes.   Carol Boggs obtained her PhD in Zoology from the University of Texas at Austin, and in 2012, she received the Lloyd W. Dinkelspiel Award for distinctive contributions to undergraduate education.Dr. Boggs has served on the advisory boards of several environmental and educational organizations, and is a Fellow of the California Academy of Sciences and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
