We are broadly interested in the effects of land use patterns on ecosystems. Among the issues being addressed are: The use of livestock for restoration and management of early successional stage ecosystems, alternative urban typologies (development styles) and their effects on ecosystem structure and function, the use of economic, planning and policy tools to promote landscape scale conservation and sustainable agriculture, and synergies between climate change and land cover patterns of ecosystem structure and function.
