 Jennifer A. Schweitzer's research program is focused the ecological and evolutionary consequences of species interactions. Specifically, 1) how global change issues (urbanization, nitrogen eutrophication, climate change, fire) affect plant-soil linkages and ecosystem processes; 2) how ecological interactions among species can alter patterns of divergence; and 3) how feedbacks along ecological gradients can change eco-evolutionary dynamics. Understanding these questions will help to better understand the importance of diversity and whether or not it matters that it is changing world-wide, will help to better conserve and restore degraded habitats and will help to better understand the ecological and evolutionary consequences of global change.​​

"Cities are microcosms of the evolutionary changes that are occurring on a planetary scale and thus provide a natural laboratory to advance our understanding of eco-evolutionary dynamics in a rapidly urbanizing world."
