About Me:

I have been working as a Regional Ecologist for the Illinois Natural Areas Inventory Update. The purpose of this project has been to locate areas within the state that have experienced little physical disturbance in their history and still contain natural communities of high quality vegetation, including such areas as high quality prairie remnants, older growth forests with intact ground layer flora, seeps, and savannas. Sites are visited only after receiving landowner permission. I work in Region 2 of the project which includes 25 counties in the east and central portions of Illinois.
