Plant Ecology and Conservation Biology

I am a plant ecologist and conservation biologist. My research integrates observational studies of plant populations and communities, experiments ranging from small-scale greenhouse manipulations to landscape-scale fire treatments, and rigorous quantitative methods to address a variety of questions in population biology, community ecology, and conservation biology. My dissertation examined factors influencing the distribution, demography, and diversity of herbaceous plants in temperate forests. My current postdoctoral research investigates the density-dependent effects of fire on plant reproduction and the demographic processes underlying plant community responses to fire in fragmented tallgrass prairie.
