Specialty

Integrated ecological assessments; conservation, ecosystem, landscape, and plant ecology; conservation and land use planning; ecosystem management; biogeography; statistical and numerical modeling; biological diversity; ecological classification and mapping; technology transfer; strategic planning for science and conservation programs; communication outreach; managing system and organizational change.

Research Interests

Role of local and regional processes on the structure of hierarchically organized ecosystems; use of geostatistics and multivariate techniques to study ecological patterns; multi-scale sampling design and data extrapolation; analysis and modeling of species distributions; multi-scale mapping of biophysical and biotic patterns; patterns of life-form coexistence; selection of regional systems of conservation networks; ecological indicators of climate and anthropogenic change; land use change; biostatistics; integration of science in the planning process (land use and management, conservation); integration of modeling, geographic information systems, relational databases, and remote sensing data for ecological studies, ecological assessments, and conservation; development of tools to communicate research results to decision makers and the public.
