Welcome! We are a diverse group of ecologists interested in many aspects of rangeland ecology. Lab research interests span a broad range of topics focusing largely on the ecology of western U.S. shrubland systems and African savannas. Specific topics include restoration ecology, livestock-wildlife-plant interactions, and grazing ecology.
Our work is primarily field-based, and we emphasize experimental and multi-site approaches to elucidating ecological phenomena and their underlying mechanisms. Our research emphasizes multi-use landscapes (both public and private) that are managed simultaneously for wildlife conservation and sustainable livestock production, with the ultimate goal of informing sustainable management of rangeland ecosystems.
