Dr. Roth joined the Seagrass Ecosystem Research program at Mote in 2023 after completing her Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Ecology at the University of Florida. For her dissertation, she analyzed the impacts of environmental change and seagrass species richness on seagrass resilience and seagrass-herbivore interactions. As a member of the Seagrass Ecosystem Research program, Dr. Roth is investigating novel approaches for increasing seagrass restoration success and increasing seagrass tolerance of disturbances.
