Our research focuses on understanding the ecological basis of sustainable agriculture and the integrated management of weeds. This program embraces a multi-disciplinary approach to address both basic and applied problems facing the agricultural communities of Montana. The overall goal of our off-campus teaching program is to develop and deliver a research-based educational program addressing local, regional, and national concerns associated with the economic, environmental, and social sustainability of integrated weed management strategies in agronomic crops.

Professor & Department Head
Land Resources and Environmental Sciences
Montana State University

I am professor and Department Head of the Land Resources and Environmental Sciences Department at Montana State University. My research and teaching programs in weed physiology center on understanding how environmental, insect and herbicide stresses influence crop and weed productivity. Current work is exploring the role and mechanism of alkaloid biosynthesis by a fungal endophyte in the toxic locoweed. I have taught courses on Plant Physiology, Plant Metabolism, and Pesticide Fate, and also offer a distance course on Herbicide Mode of Action at MSU with CSU.
