His research interests are generally forest disturbance ecology and its effects on understory communities. He has focused largely on natural (fire and windthrow) and anthropogenic agents (climate change, forest fragmentation, and exotic species introductions). He has worked on numerous ecosystems including Australian heath, tropical forests, montane conifer forests, temperate deciduous forests, boreal forests, and temperate savannas in Colorado, Illinois, New York, Ontario (Canada), Victoria (Australia), and New Caledonia.
