Bio

Education

  • B.S., 1970, Iowa State University, Botany
  • Ph.D., 1977, Utah State University, Ecology

My research centers on a wide variety of plant ecology investigations in the region, as well as ongoing attempts to more completely document the vascular flora of the region by looking for novelties. My outreach consists mostly of assisting the community with plant identification, but sometimes extends to other topics.  I have served on several advisory committees for Minnesota government agencies.
