Dr. Betsy Von Holle is interested in the landscape patterns and community mechanisms that influence the addition of species into ecosystems. Her research interests span four related themes: 1) the investigation of ecosystem and anthropogenic factors that influence invasion by nonnative species, 2) understanding changes in ecosystem function as a result of ecological restoration, 3) the characterization of the impact and type of species to invade natural areas, and 4) economic impacts and policy implications of nonnative species invasions.
