Tadeo Ramirez Parada
I graduated with a B.S. in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and Mathematics from Tulane University (2017), where I subsequently joined Dr. Jordan Karubian's lab to study the proximate factors driving the asynchronous reproductive behavior of Oenocarpus bataua, a hyperdominant, neotropical canopy palm.
In the Mazer lab, my research will leverage the vast temporal, taxonomic, and geographic scale of herbarium datasets to characterize the phenological responses of California's flora to climate change. Concurrently, I am interested in assessing the factors that predict phenological sensitivity to changes in climate among taxa, and in how the effects of climate on proximate vs. eco-evolutionary drivers interact to determine net phenological responses
