Phone: (608) 785-6977  E-Mail:  dgerberi@uwlax.edu

Ph.D. University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (1994)
M.S. Clemson University (1986)
B.S., University of Nebraska, Lincoln (1982)

My research interests are in the areas of morphometrics, nutrient uptake, and physiological ecology of aquatic vascular plants.

Courses Taught:

BIO 103/105, Introduction to Biological Sciences
BIO 404/504, Plant Taxonomy
BIO 405/505, Aquatic Vascular Plants
BIO 302 Local Trees and Shrubs
BIO 337 Plant Physiology


My teaching interests fall into two areas. Botany, aquatic plant biology in particular, is my greatest teaching interest. I am also interested in developing educational courses with a science emphasis for K-12 teachers.
