Biography

My research interests include the study of vegetation dynamics at both fine-scale and landscape levels, in response to altered environmental and disturbance regimes.  I am particularly interested in how ecological theory can be used to understand community development and the application of this knowledge to land management.  Recent research has focused on the restoration of degraded landscapes, understanding plant community responses to changed disturbance regimes through the study of soil seed banks, and recruitment requirements in semi-arid systems.
