Dr. Hallett is a plant community ecologist whose research spans a variety of ecosystems (including woodlands, serpentine grasslands, working rangelands, and alpine). Her research themes include community assembly, species coexistence, functional traits, ecosystem stability and resilience theory.
The Hallett lab aims to produce “usable” science to improve ecosystem management. This is achieved through a combination of long-term data analysis, population modeling, and field experiments. Her recent publications include journal articles in Ecology, BioScience, Ecological Restoration and the Journal of Applied Ecology.
