Peter is a plant ecologist interested in explaining population and community dynamics in space and time. He, along with his lab group, study coexistence and patterns of diversity, climate change impacts on plant populations and communities, and plant-animal interactions. Much of our field work is in arid and semiarid ecosystems, but we also rely on statistical and simulation modeling techniques that apply to many ecosystems.
