Ecosystem Management in an Era of Global Change

Amy Concilio, Ph.D.

I am an interdisciplinary environmental scientist with research interests in global change, invasive species, and management of grassland and rangeland ecosystems.

I employ a diversity of research methods, including ecological field trials, greenhouse experiments, and stakeholder interviews to measure impacts of global change on plant communities and ecosystems and to test the effectiveness and feasibility of land management approaches.

In 2016, I joined the faculty in the School of Behavioral and Social Sciences at St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX, to teach and advise students in the interdisciplinary Environmental Science and Policy program. I teach classes in Climate Change, Natural Resource Conservation and Management, Environmental Chemistry, and Research Methods.
