The Ecology of Schoolyards and Urban Ecosystems

Ecological research interests have concerned the ecology and management of plant communities in rights-of-way, agroecosystems, schoolyards and urban ecosystems.

Schoolyard Research

Do schoolyards reflect the ecology and/or sociology of the neighborhoods they occur in? If so, they might contain a similar mix of land covers and thus serve as an accessible microcosm for students to study that still reflects their larger environment.
