Dr. Pennings is collaborating with Dr. Anna Armitage (Texas A&M Galveston) and Dr. John Kominoski (FIU) to study the spread of mangroves on the Texas Coast, and the consequences that this will have for coastal ecological services.

In particular, she is testing whether the addition of native soil microbes help “jump start” restoration by speeding up plant colonization and soil development.
