Botany, Trinity College Dublin
Jane Stout is a Professor of Botany at Trinity College Dublin. She is an ecologist and much of her research uses plant-pollinator interactions as a model system for investigating anthropogenic impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem services. Jane’s particular interests focus on rare native and invasive alien species, in both managed and unmanaged landscapes. She employs field-based experimental studies combined with laboratory analyses to characterise insect behaviour, plant breeding systems, biodiversity and conservation of pollinators and their impacts on plant population dynamics.
