Working at the interface of freshwater ecology and conservation biology to understand How Species Respond to environmental change.
Wildlife Resource/Habitat Selection
Understanding the decision making process that animals use to choose prey, establish a home range, and move through their environment helps us identify the conditions necessary for a species to thrive.
Individual-level variation in physiology, movement, and reproductive success can highlight the proximate mechanisms affecting population growth, community composition, and ultimately ecosystem function.
The broader goal of nearly all our research is to understand why and how populations change over time. Answering these questions can help us better asses the current status of species and how it might change under alternative scenarios.
