Landscape Ecology, Modeling, & Spatial Dynamics

Lori Biederman

Plant-soil interactions, community ecology, restoration, plant population dynamics, conservation, agroecosystems

William Clark

Estimation of population parameters from recapture data, integration of dispersal behavior into metapopulation modeling, and the effects of habitat fragmentation on predators.

Brent Danielson

Effects of complex landscapes on the dynamics and structure of animal communities.

Diane Debinski

Current research includes studies of: 1)biogeographic analysis of species/habitat relationships using use of GIS and remotely sensed data, 2) restoration of prairie communities, 3) habitat fragmentation in agroecosystems, and 4) global climate change.

John Downing

Limnology, aquatic ecology, biogeochemistry, restoration ecology, landscape ecology and conservation of aquatic biodiversity. Watershed studies analyze the influence of the chemical and physical characteristics of aquatic ecosystems on phytoplankton, zooplankton, benthos and fish. Conservation studies emphasize freshwater mussels.

Stanley Harpole

Community Ecology, species diversity, biodiversity theory, mathematical and statistical modeling

Kirsten Hofmockel Microbial ecology with an emphasis on carbon and nitrogen cycling in terrestrial ecosystems; mechanisms driving decomposition and nutrient cycling responses to climate change; biogeochemistry, plant microbe interactions.

Kirk Moloney

Research interests include the spatial dynamics of ecological systems; relationships between ecological pattern and process; disturbance ecology; ecology of invasions; and the application of ecological knowledge in the process of restoration.

James Raich

Terrestrial ecosystems ecology; plant-soil-atmosphere carbon exchanges; nutrient cycling; human and environmental controls over ecosystem processes within forests, grasslands, and agricultural landscapes.
