Mitchel McClaran's research interests include plant ecology and natural resource policy. He is investigating the sensitivity of plant species abundance and distribution to climate parameters in the San Pedro River Watershed. In addition, he is involved in research on the Santa Rita Experimental Range near Tucson, focusing on the long-term vegetation dynamics that can be described using photographs dating to 1903 and the research data describing vegetation cover and density on more than 100 permanent locations since 1956.
