Research
There are currently two themes to the research in my lab: (1) the historical influence of landscapes on plant communities and (2) the genetic diversity influence on plant populations and communities. I am also interested in theories that concern biodiversity in ecology and evolution, and the possibility of synthesizing these two fundamental domains of biology. In the framework of our research of landscape history, we have studied terrestrial ecosystems in the East and West of North America and in Europe where the usage of landscape for agriculture and prescribed burning have had long term ecological consequences. In the framework of our eco-genetic research, we conduct experiments with dandelions and other plant species from the field. Our research aims to answer fundamental scientific questions, as well as solving applied problems in conservation biology.
