While the major thrust of my research centers on the issues discussed above, I have been involved in a variety of collaborative projects that span a diverse conceptual areas in population and community ecology. These projects have explored how spatial processes influence insect outbreaks (Maron et al. 2001), plant defense (Karban and Maron 2002, Karban et al. 2003, Agrawal et al. 2013), the role of climate change in affecting species interactions and avian community organization (Martin and Maron 2012), eco-evolutionary feedbacks between plants and consumers (Agrawal et al. 2012).
