I study the causes and consequences of plant diversity patterns in prairies and grasslands. Much of this research focuses on prairie restoration and the role of seed addition / seed dispersal in controlling plant diversity under different environmental conditions.
This research also focuses on ecosystem services that are consequences of plant diversity, such as biomass production (biofuel and forage production), bee diversity (pollination), and soil characteristics (carbon sequestration).
