I am interested in forest and plant ecology and plant phenology emphasizing abiotic and biotic limitations on phenology, seed set and recruitment. I also have strong interests in canopy biology, plant phenology and inter- and intra-specific relationships among photosynthesis, leaf longevity, and the demography of individuals.
