Summary of research

My research interests vary widely within the field of ecology. Some of my recent studies concern: tree-climate relationships, landscape-level changes in trophic interactions, spread of non-native pathogens across heterogeneous landscapes, loss of open savannah forest due to encroachment, the effects of habitat fragmentation on plant extinction risk, and the role of plant genetic diversity in governing communities of herbivores and ecosystem processes. I also have a passion for environmental history.
