About Natali Ramirez-Bullon, Ph.D.

Dr. Natali Ramirez-Bullon is a listing and recovery botanist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service based out of Asheville, North Carolina. Currently the national recovery lead for 10 federally listed plant species. Natali is an AAUW American Dissertation Fellow and National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) graduate fellow.  A graduate of Florida State University with a master's and Ph.D. in ecology and evolution.  For her master thesis, she constructed and analyzed a matrix demographic model for a threatened dioecious plant to determine their population status. Her dissertation research used field experimentation and synthetic analyses of global scale biological data to support a quantitative framework for setting conservation priorities for plant species. Prior to joining the Service, she worked as a biologist for environmental consulting companies, research institutions, non-profit and federal conservation agencies in three countries (Peru, UK, and USA). She led an interdisciplinary team to investigate how public engagement with biodiversity influences policy and how it relates to conservation success, resulting in one of her eight publications. In her free time, she enjoys learning new skills such as crocheting and spending time with friends.
