Name: Dovciak, Martin (Researcher)

Institution: SUNY ESF

Description of Expertise:

I have general interests in plant ecology, vegetation management, and invasion ecology. I study the effects of vegetation management on dispersal of a range of invasive plants in New York State powerline corridors as well as the effects of beech bark disease on forest stand dynamics in the Adirondack mountains.
