My research interests are very broadly in plant ecology and statistical applications in ecology. I have worked at a wide range of levels, but my main interests and those of my students have largely been in plant population and community ecology. Major current interests are plant demography in disturbed environments, the ecology of biological invasions, and meta-analysis in ecological research. My students have generally worked on very independent projects for their dissertations, on a wide range of topics including plant-pathogen interactions, agricultural ecosystems, tropical ecology, and plant-animal interactions in the dispersal of invasive plants.
