overview

Dr. Anna Armitage is a broadly trained community ecologist with over 20 years of experience working in coastal wetlands. Her research utilizes multivariate, interdisciplinary field studies to study trophic interactions and anthropogenic impacts in coastal wetland habitats, including marshes, mangroves, and seagrasses. Her current research projects include studies about the effects of nutrient enrichment on ecological interactions and processes in the mangrove-marsh ecotone and other coastal wetland habitats. She has extensive experience conducting large-scale field surveys and managing and analyzing complex datasets. She has published 36 peer-reviewed papers and has supervised numerous graduate and undergraduate students and postdoctoral research scholars.
