Rice, Peter

Research Ecologist
Division of Biological Sciences
The University of Montana - Missoula
Professional Summary: 

My work focuses on planning and coordination of multi disciplinary studies in applied ecology and resource management with emphasis on invasive plant control, invasive aquatic plants, and native plant community restoration. I often examine the impacts of exotic species on biological diversity. Integrated weed management methods (herbicides, burning, biocontrols, revegetation) alter the competitive interactions between the target weeds and non-target natives. Related work includes exotic plant biogeography and GIS applications in weed management. Computing and web work areas include database designs, software applications, web based systems for natural resource management decision making, and risk assessments for potential new invaders. I have a particular interest in experimental design and multivariate statistical analysis as applicable to ecological invasions and management.
