Research Interests

Current research addresses the patterns and controls of nitrogen (N) cycling dynamics in pine forests with a primary focus on the effects of prescribed burning on the loss, retention, and replacement of N in these ecosystems.  The ultimate goal of this research program is to provide critical information for the development of more ecologically sound burning regimes for the long-term sustainable management of fire-maintained forest ecosystems in the southeastern United States.
