Expertise: My students and I are currently pursuing a variety of questions in several areas of plant population biology and plant ecology. These areas include (1) the dynamics and regulation of plant populations; (2) competitive and facilitative interactions between plants and their consequences for community structure and for species distributions across their landscape; (3) the effects of herbivory and of fire on plant population dynamics, plant-plant interactions, community structure, and landscape-scale distributions. We address these topics using a variety of plant species (grasses, forbs, woody plants) and communities, including central Texas savannas and woodlands. Field, greenhouse, and garden experiments, descriptive field studies, and theoretical models are among the techniques we have used. A number of our current projects have conservation applications, including the preservation of an endangered annual forb and the management of woodland preserves. Please see our research webpages for more information.

Spanish Speaker

Expertise: Jowers directs three major grant projects, including the Texas Initiatives for Children's Activity & Nutrition (I-CAN!) project, the Women, Infants & Children (WIC) Retention and Engagement Study, and the PMATS/Walk Texas! Project. Texas I-CAN! is an obesity prevention project that aims to increase both physical activity and healthy eating in elementary school children. This project is currently funded through the National Institutes of Health/ Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center for Child Development.The goal is to train elementary school teachers to incorporate physical activity into their academic lessons daily and to evaluate the corresponding physical activity changes and academic impact on the participating children. This is a 5-year project that will recruit 30 elementary schools within Central Texas. Jowers was part of the creation and refinement of this program since 2001 and has extensive experience working with children, elementary school teachers, and independent school districts. The WIC Engagement and Retention Study is funded by the Department of State Health Services (DSHS)/WIC State Office to examine both quantitatively and qualitatively the factors that influence participant engagement and retention in the program. PMATS/Walk Texas! is funded by the Department of State Health Services (DSHS)/Texas Diabetes Council/Program to provide diabetes prevention and technical assistance/expertise to state-funded community diabetes prevention projects. Additionally, Dr. Jowers manages the online reporting system, termed the Program Management and Tracking System, for the Texas Department of State and Health Services. This system tracks clinical outcomes across various programs (physical activity, nutrition, diabetes self management) to determine the impact of the programs on diabetes prevention and control across the state of Texas.
