Konza Prairie LTER Featured Graduate Student - Rosalie Terry

Rosalie Terry is a PhD student in the Department of Biology at the University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG). Rosalie received her B.S. in Ecology & Evolution from the University of Pittsburgh, where she worked with a team to assess how invasive plants affect native plant establishment in forest and riparian ecosystems.

Rosalie joined Dr. Sally Koerner’s lab at UNCG in 2021. Here, she uses field experiments, theory, and analysis of long-term data to research the impacts of global change and altered disturbance regimes on grassland ecosystems. Rosalie is also passionate about building connections between scientists and the general public and helps run a science pub in Greensboro, NC. Her work at Konza investigates multi-trophic community pathways between grazed and ungrazed states and the degree to which global change shifts these trajectories.
