Richard Vance is an ecologist. My research projects through the years have employed diverse methods and spanned diverse areas of ecology, all related in some way to the dynamics of populations. These methods and areas include field observations and experiments in intertidal and subtidal benthic marine communities, mathematical theories and computer simulations of assorted population, community, and evolutionary phenomena, and restoration of degraded salt marsh communities.
