Jon Keeley, an adjunct professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, is an expert on the ecological impacts and history of wildfires in Southern California and other ecosystems with Mediterranean-type climates. A focus of Keeley’s research involves the relationship between wildfires and the invasion of natural ecosystems by non-native plants, how plants respond to environmental stresses such as fire, and also seed germination.
