My research focuses on the effects that complex landscapes have on the dynamics and structure of populations and communities. Using models, censuses, and experimental data, I develop models predicting patterns of abundances and diversities that may result from modifying the composition of spatial arrangement of habitat in natural or semi-natural landscapes. Ongoing research includes studies of plant-mammal prairie communities, the impacts of agricultural practices on future wildlife populations, and the effects of forest management strategies on animals and plants. My students and I work on a variety of organisms ranging from small mammals to butterflies and other invertebrates.
