Wetland ecology and restoration
Dr. Kettenring's research address basic and applied questions related to wetland, plant, seed, invasion, and restoration ecology. She addresses questions such as:
- What limits the restoration of wetland plant communities?
- What role do plant species and genetic diversity play in restoring the structure and function of wetlands?
- What makes invasive plants successful, what are their impacts, and how can we best manage them in wetlands?
- How do short and long-term drought, and intensive water management, affect wetland plant communities?
