Lab research focuses on plant biogeography and floristics and invasive species interactions and management, specifically within the Great Lakes region.
Distribution of threatened and endangered plants, especially in sand dune ecosystems.
Forest community structure and composition patterns in protected areas.
Ecological impacts and changes related to invasive species colonization and dominance.
Use of novel techniques to control or remove invasive species from managed ecosystems.
The Plant Ecology Lab is associated with the Environmental Resources Center, promoting the understanding and conservation of the natural resources of the region.
