Research Interests: rangeland management for water yield and water quality
Brief description of current research:
The overall research goal is to produce knowledge and technologies for maintaining rangelands as a source of wealth. The research requires a balance of ecological and rangeland management studies.
My specific research program goals are:
Current research interests include ecology and management of prairie and savannah, and prescribed burning and fire ecology in grasslands and upland forests.
