Research Interests

  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.   Current Research Addresses the Patterns and Controls of Nitrogen Cycling Dynamics in Pine Forests With a Primary Focus on the Effects of Prescribed Burning on the Loss
