Kevin Robertson received his BS in Botany from Louisiana State University where he conducted fire ecology research in pinelands of Everglade National Park, southern Georgia, and Louisiana. He received his Ph.D. in Plant Biology at the University of Illinois where he studied the effects of river migration on floodplain forests along rivers of the southeastern U.S. He is currently the Fire Ecology Program Director at Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy. There he studies the plant community ecology of southeastern U.S. pine ecosystems, the natural history of the Gulf Coastal Plain, remote sensing of fire, effects of fire regime on plant communities, soils, and fire behavior, and prescribed fire effects on air quality. He also provides extension and education regarding the use of prescribed burning in fire-dependent ecosystems of the southeastern U.S.
