research group focuses on diversified cropping
systems, weed ecology and management, and the use of native perennial species
for soil and water conservation and biofuel production. Included within
the scope of our work are experiments involving crop rotations, cover crops,
green manures, intercrops, reconstructed prairies, conservation strips, animal
manures, composts, and insects and rodents that consume weed seeds. A list of

I serve as the Henry A. Wallace Chair for Sustainable Agriculture and am a
member of the graduate faculties in Sustainable Agriculture, Ecology and
Evolutionary Biology, Biorenewable Resources and Technology, and Crop
Production and Physiology.
