Research Summary

see section bio for more info Our research focus is soil ecology, particularly the "mesofauna" between worms and fungi scales. An important restoration "tool" of grasslands/prairies are livestock that simulate the role of bison herds for keeping microniches for seedling development and light optimized on leaf areas. Dung beetles are important for water infiltration and recycling nutrients. We focus on many ecosystems, from tropical to xeric, from Central America to Canada. Both privately owned land and public land are important practical uses for integrating conservation and restoration management with economic and social benefits.
