Conservation Ecology and Biogeography of Longleaf Pine Ecosystems

We currently have a collaborative project with Tom Wentworth, Jenny Xiang, Matt Hohmann (ERDC-CERL), and Janet Gray (Ft. Bragg) to study population dynamics, community ecology, and conservation genetics of several rare species of Ft. Bragg, in the Sandhills region of North Carolina.
