About Eugene W. Schupp

My research revolves around two main themes. The first is the Recruitment Ecology of Woody Plants. Working in various sites, I study patterns of seed dispersal, seed survival, germination, and seedling growth and survival. I try to understand how patterns of initial seed dispersal affect patterns of new recruitment, and ultimately what stages of recruitment are the most limiting for population growth. The second theme is Restoration Ecology. Working with students and research associates, I have been involved in a number of projects related to restoration of degraded sagebrush steppe in the western U.S. Our research has included such topics as the effects of nutrient manipulations on competition between weeds and desirable plants, the role of seed banks in vegetation responses to treatments, and the positive and negative effects of ants and rodents on restoration efforts.
