Professor, Department Head
University System: Montana State University - Bozeman
I conduct research in the fields of conservation biology, landscape ecology, and restoration ecology. Some of the specific topics of my research include biodiversity preservation, effects of habitat fragmentation, and climate change. In grasslands, my research has focused on evaluating the use of fire and grazing in the context of managing for plant, bird, and pollinator communities. In montane meadows, I have been conducting both observational and experimental studies of community responses to drought and environmental variation.
