Quigley's teaching has included Restoration Ecology, Landscape Graphics and Design, Landscape, Plant Selection, Basic Biology, Environmental Biology, Ecological Field Methods, Plant Ecology and Ethnobotany. He also initiated a field course in Tropical Conservation Biology, under the auspices of the Organization for Tropical Studies in Costa Rica.
Quigley is also a licensed landscape architect and an environmental and planning consultant. He has worked on historic landscape renovations, rails-to-trails conversions, vegetation surveys and other environmental analyses, and botanic garden enhancements. His current research focus is stewardship and restoration of fragmented second-growth forests, green roof plantings with native species, the creation of vegetated swales for filtration of urban runoff, and suppression of woody exotic invasives. His goal is to promulgate a greater awareness of uniquely regional habitats and plant associations, their fragility and resilience - and how humans, in our alterations of the landscape, must work with the ecosystem rather than attempt to replace it with an unsustainable image.
