Since 1999, I have been evaluating plant materials performance for the regional climate as firewise landscaping. See the Idaho firewise website for specifics.
Since 1978, I have been studying the regional plant ecology. This includes noxious weeds, sagebrush, grasses, biological soil crusts and the risk to ecosystem functions. Some studies have focused on how to keep cheatgrass out of the landscape. I was conducted into the Idaho weed hall of Fame, by the Idaho weed coordinating committee
I am interested in field oriented studies.
