Chris Ray studies and models the dynamics of plant and animal populations, focusing especially on threatened species with fragmented populations. Recent projects include hierarchical modeling of point count data, analyzing the role of metacommunity dynamics in plant community assembly, and modeling the spatial and temporal dynamics of disease in mammal communities. Her long-term project involves research on the American pika, aimed at understanding climatic influences on the distribution of this species throughout western North America.Disciplines: Animal ecology
