Ecology, Management, and Restoration of Rangelands
Our group focuses on the evolution of plant adaptation, specifically on how grasses and shrubs native to the Sonoran Desert respond to water which is the most variable and important environmental factor affecting plant growth and survival in deserts.
I teach the following courses: Plant Biology (PLS 240), Field Botany (RNR 230R), Field Botany Laboratory (RNR 230L), Our Place in Nature: Biology and the Environment (RNR 170C1), Sustainable Earth: Natural Resources and the Environment (RNR 150C1).
