Most of what Dr. Gilliam does lies at the boundary between the levels of terrestrial plant communities and ecosystems. Gilliam particularly is interested in the movement and cycling of plant nutrients within terrestrial ecosystems. Directly related to this are interests in fire ecology and the effects of fire on nutrient cycling and on plants and soils in fire-prone ecosystems.
