Research Overview

       I am interested in the forces that structure plant communities particularly nutrient availability and herbivory, how species diversity feeds back to affect ecosystem function, and the effects particular traits may have on species responses to perturbations in a community context. My research spans several different ecosystem types with an emphasis on arctic tundra.
