Jenny VanWyk is a community ecologist and entomologist. Her research addresses factors that govern community dynamics for native bee populations, including disease transmission, plant-pollinator networks, environmental stressors, and community response to human disturbances. She focuses on how plant and insect traits mediate species interactions, and how these interactions – both mutualistic and antagonistic – affect bee population dynamics and broader ecological outcomes.
