Research Interest 1
Restoration ecology and in situ conservation; development of management techniques and theoretical approaches to study vegetation dynamics for plant community conservation; predicting impact of management on multi-species interactions; study of heathland and moorland habitats and their interactions with weed species (bracken and Molinia); effects of soils on heath and moorland development.
