Biography

Dr. Stromberg received her Ph.D. at Arizona State University (ASU), and was an associate research professor at ASU's Center for Environmental Studies. She serves on the editorial board of Wetlands and is a member of the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher Endangered Species Recovery Team.

Dr. Stromberg is a plant ecologist who specializes in riparian ecosystems. Much of her research focuses on relationships between stream and ground water hydrology and riparian ecosystems, and on effects of ecosystem disturbance (floods and fire) on riparian plant populations, communities, and landscapes. Some studies are conducted at reference sites where human influence is minimal, others are carried out at hydrologically altered sites or at sites undergoing restoration. By understanding pattern and process in riparian ecosystems, she provides resource managers with information that can inform conservation and restoration efforts.

Education

  • PhD, Plant Ecology, Arizona State University, 1988
  • MS, Botany, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, 1981
  • BS, Botany, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, 1979
