Plant-soil-climate relationships; biophysical and physiological ecology from leaf to landscape.

Research Interests

Science in support of the DOI Landscape Conservation Cooperatives; ecology of upland, terrestrial landscapes in the western U.S. with emphasis on understanding resistance and resilience of semiarid plant communities; causes and consequences of vegetation change; invasive plants with emphasis on cheatgrass and exotic forbs in sagebrush steppe; fire effects with emphasis on post-fire wind erosion.
