Richards' lab studies wetland plant ecology, especially how plants respond to the hydrologic and nutrient challenges presented by the aquatic environment, and the landscape and community ecology of south Florida vegetation. Recently, they have been using remote sensing techniques to map wetland vegetation in southern Florida. They also are interested in the biology of invasive plant species with an emphasis on understanding vegetative and sexual reproduction in these species and how these processes affect invasiveness.
