Lawrence Harder is a professor in the Department of Biological Sciences in UCalgary's Faculty of Science and Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. He has exposed new perspectives on the ecology and evolution of angiosperm reproduction. His theoretical and empirical research illustrates the contribution of plant-pollinator interactions to the diversity of flowering plants, reveals inflorescences, rather than individual flowers, as the fundamental unit of plant mating, and integrates ecological and genetic perspectives on plant mating. He has also clarified the nature of pollination problems confronting global agricultural production and identified principles for improved agricultural practice.
