BiographyI first began working in ecological restoration in 1993. Most of my field work has been working on the restoration of tallgrass prairies and oak savanna in the American Midwest. I am also interested in the effects of environmental and climate change on planning for ecological restoration and human attitudes towards restoration. Along with editing the Routledge Handbook of Ecological and Environmental Restoration, I am the author of Ecological Restoration and Environmental Change: Renewing Damaged Ecosystems and numerous articles on various aspects of restoration. I am currently the secretary of the board of directors of Society for Ecological Restoration and have served on the board since 2009. I have been a coordinating editor for the journal Restoration Ecology since 2005.
