Current Research

My current research includes examining and improving native plant nursery cultural practices, investigating subsequent consequences of cultural practices on seedling physiology, and studying the biophysical site limitations of outplanting.

Research Interests

My research interests include seedling and plant physiology, ecophysiology, and envrionmental biophysics.

Past Research

Landscapes across the globe are being threatened by population pressure and the accompanying development of urban and rural infrastructure; land management practices including energy, mining, and grazing; and invasive species. Within these disturbed areas, it is important to understand how to quickly repair and restore valuable ecosystem services and production. Restoration and reforestation using nursery-produced seedlings is often the most reliable way to ensure successful establishment and rapid growth following outplanting. Understanding the attributes that contribute to a quality seedling, and the mechanisms whereby a seedling becomes established with its new environment, will help us restore critical ecosystem functions, such as water quality, wildlife habitat, carbon sequestration, and cultural utilization, in the quickest means possible.

Why This Research is Important

1. Native plant cultural practices that focus on water savings and nutrient use efficiency.2. Improving seedling stocktype trials.3. Biophysical limitations to seedling establishment.
