What are your research interests?

My interests focus in forest community ecology and extend into the application of ecology: silviculture. I have worked in both tropical and temperate forest systems. Current research is focused on ecological processes of riparian forests, ecology of post-fire forest dynamics, and management of red alder (Hardwood Silviculture Cooperative). I have had a finger into projects on scale-effects on plant diversity controls, food webs in riparian systems, and the autecology of Willamette Valley savanna tree species.
