In 2010 I was appointed the director of the University of Houston Coastal Center, which is located between Houston and Galveston. The roughly 1,000 acre property contains large stands of tallgrass prairie. The UHCC provides a field site and logistical support for environmental research on the Texas coast.


Our work at the UHCC is led by Chelse Prather, who is examining how land use histories and soil chemistry affect plant and herbivore communities.
