She will then be presenting a research poster, “Sneaky Botany: Engaging Art & Design Students in Applied Botany Through the Medium of Gardening,” at the annual scientific conference of the Botanical Society of America in Columbus, OH, July 7–11, 2012.
She will also be presenting a paper at the 97th annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America (ESA) in Portland OR, Aug. 5–10, 2012. Her paper will address “How do white oak trees respond structurally when their physical environment is changed by repeated fires?”
Landsbergen teaches ecology, scientific applications for the artist, and honors seminars addressing sustainability. Her area of scientific expertise is forest ecosystems and sustainability with research focusing on forest growth and function in urban and remote ecosystems.
