Ecology of Invasive Species

High Density Invasion of an Iowa Wetland by Purple Loosestrife
Natural, Low Density Distribution of Purple Loosestrife in Native Habitat, Germany

     I am involved in an international collaborative project comparing the population biology of invasive species in native and invaded habtiats. Our contention is that the only way to fully understand and control invasive species is through an indentification of the cructial demographic stages that differentiate native from invaded habitat.. Currently we are working on a project comparing the population biology of purple loosestrife (Lythurm salicaria L.) in North America (invaded habitat) and Europe (native habitat).
