Research and Teaching Areas
Assistant Professor of Biology at Lincoln Memorial University where his research has focused across three main areas: (1) the ecology and distribution of slime molds, (2) the dynamics of red spruce dominated forests across the highest elevations of the central Appalachians, and (3) the distribution and ecology of fungi. Dr. Rollins' research expeditions have taken him to five continents encompassing numerous ecosystems including tropical forests (both New World and Old World), boreal forests, subalpine forests, temperate deciduous forests, grasslands, and deserts.
