Dr. Veblen's research interests span a broad range of topics focusing largely on the ecology of western U.S. shrubland/grassland systems and African savannas. Specific topics include plant community ecology, plant-herbivore interactions, livestock-wild ungulate interactions, and restoration ecology. Kari's work is primarily field-based with an emphasis on experimental and multi-site approaches to elucidating ecological phenomena and their underlying mechanisms. Her research emphasizes multi-use landscapes (both public and private) that are managed simultaneously for wildlife conservation and sustainable livestock production, with the ultimate goal of informing sustainable management of rangeland ecosystems.
