Research Interests/Duties

Ecology of invasive exotic species; risk assessment and cost/benefit models for invasive species; population, community, and ecosystem processes associated with disturbances to tropical and warm temperate forests; effects of changing hydrology on nutrient processes and forest dynamics in bottomland hardwood forests of southeastern US.

Current Emphases, Studies, Projects
  • Growth rates and physiological characteristics of exotic and native Hawaiian trees and shrubs under light and nutrient variation. (with A. Uowolo)
  • Economic and ecological cost-benefit assessment of the invasive tree, Psidium cattleianum (strawberry guava), in the Hawaiian Islands (with J. Yanagida, U. Hawaii CTAHR)
  • Demography of the invasive tree, Psidium cattleianum, in mid-elevation moist Hawaiian forest. (with T. Johnson, A. Uowolo, R. Nagata, and C. Perry)
  • Assessment of invasiveness among exotic plants in the Hawaiian Islands (with C. Daehler and the Hawaii Exotic Plant Evaluation Committee)
  • Impact of the biological control agent, Colletotrichum gloeosporioides v. miconieae, on the invasive tree, Miconia calvescens (with P. Conant and E. Kilgore, Hawaii DOA).
