Plant community interactions with stabilizing factors, specifically repeated landscape-scale low-intensity fire such as that historically utilized by indigenous peoples in the central Midwest. Ozark flora identification and species assemblages. Seeding into communities undergoing restoration/recreation, and how the presumed lack of highly diverse native seed banks due to fire suppression and colonizer land use leads to depauperate restoration sites. Prescribed fire timing and how it relates to plant community assemblages and woody encroachment of native grasslands.
