Jessica Savage

As a Putnam Fellow, Jessica Savage focused on how the vascular system influences the timing of flowering in trees. Published in American Journal of Botany, her research shows that trees that flower before they leaf out invest more resources for flower development the previous year rather than in the spring before the vascular system is fully functional.

Understanding the role of different cues, like temperature and chilling, is important to predict how plant phenology, or the timing of life cycle events, will respond to climate change. Published in New Phytologist, Dan Flynn and Elizabeth (Lizzie) Wolkovich manipulated various cues using a growth chamber to understand this complex process. Abstract»
