B.S. in Biology from Binghamton University

    Current Projects:  

Jim is sampling diversity and productivity in several reconstructed ecosystems.  Research on biodiversity and ecosystem function (BEF) theory has long suggested that diversity is positively related to productivity; Jim's work will test this axiom within the context of restored ecosystems. Two restoration sites that have been sampled are UW Arboretum's Curtis Prairie and a Tijuana Estuary salt marsh.

  Jim is from the town of Horseheads in upstate New York.  He became interested in plants as an undergraduate working with aquatic macrophytes through both greenhouse experiments and fieldwork in the Adirondack Lakes.
