Current Research

Spatial pattern, measure of aggregation and ecological diversity. A comparison among species diversity, similarity, species abundances, etc., in federal, state and private owned forests.

How species diversity is affected by the owner's goals to manage the forest for timber, wildlife or for both timber and wildlife,

Which species are promoted when the forest is managed only for timber production?

How diversity changes when the forest is managed only for wildlife (hunting clubs forests, wildlife refuges),

How diversity changes in private forests, etc.
