April 19, 2018

ESPM professor Rosemary Gillespie is one of nine UC Berkeley faculty recently elected to the American Academy of Arts & Sciences,  a time-honored, prestigious society that convenes leaders in academic, business, and government sectors to solve critical national and global challenges.

Gillespie's research looks at evolutionary patterns among populations and species, primarily in remote Pacific islands. Her recent studies focused on the invasion and evolution of stick spiders in the Hawaiian islands, and the evolution of a unique group of plants called silverswords.
