Research Interests

  • I am a plant ecologist with primarily conservation-oriented interests. My main research projects include: (a) assessing patterns in the geographic and taxonomic distribution of rare plants in the US and Canada; (b) predicting the effect of habitat fragmentation on distribution shift potentials of trees under global warming scenarios; and (c) monitoring of rare plants and population viability analysis. I have ongoing long-term monitoring projects on mapped forest plot community dynami
