Plant Ecology at Marshall University​



We are plant ecologists with research interests spanning both basic and applied science. Our research focuses on two important questions in ecology: 

1) What ecological processes structure plant communities and how does their relative importance change over space and time?

2) How will ongoing and future environmental change influence plant communities?
We collect field data, use existing large observational data sets and remote sensing, and implement simulation modeling to pursue these questions in a variety of ecosystems, including temperate forests and woodlands, drylands dominated by big sagebrush, and salt marshes.
