We investigate why and how ecological systems change


We are plant community ecologists working at the interface of ecosystem, landscape and population biology. Our goal is to apply cutting-edge science to the challenges of restoration, invasion, and environmental change.



Find out about our team, our projects, and the results of our work.

Some common themes include plant-soil feedbacks, species effects on ecosystem processes, community assembly, functional traits, thresholds and resilience.


Get Involved

We partner with other researchers, non-profits, community members. We love to involve students. There are many ways to join in.
