My lab’s research in plant-animal interactions is grounded in natural history and carries conservation implications. The themes of my lab’s work on plant-animal interactions revolve around (1) the importance of animals to plants, and (2) the importance of plants to animals. In the former theme, we study seed dispersal effectiveness, while in the latter theme, we investigate how land-use change for bioenergy and forest management affects biodiversity of focal animal taxa that provide ecosystem services.
