Research encompasses many areas within plant ecology. A primary interest is prairie and grassland ecology (plant community studies, fire ecology, effects of management in restorations, landscape ecology of prairie remnants, and prairie plant biology and eco physiology). Substantial work has been done investigating ecology of seed banks. Forest community work has been directed at the effects o f deer herbivory on forest composition and structure, and on the effects of dredge placement on floodplain forests. Avian ecology is also an interest, particularly the bird community composition studies.
