Researcher interests: Movement ecology, the study of all types of movements by all kinds of organisms, particularly dispersal of plant seeds by wind and by animals, other plant-animal interactions such as seed predation by ants and foraging of frugivorous birds and bats, and seasonal bird migration. Use of diverse research approaches to study organism movement, including analyses of genetic variation (microsatellites for pines and bats), biotelemetry tracking, micrometeorological measurements, GIS analyses and other spatial statistics and various kinds of models.
