PORTLAND, OR. Michael Wisdom, a research wildlife biologist with the Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest (PNW) Research Station, received a Fulbright Scholar grant to lecture and conduct research at the Argentinean Institute of Arid Lands Research. Wisdom will teach a graduate level course on animal resource selection and will conduct research on two species of Argentinean native ungulates and their habitat requirements and landscape use patterns.

The Fulbright program, founded in 1946 by Senator J. William Fulbright, is designed to help increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other nations. The program is the most widely recognized and prestigious international exchange program in the world, with recipients selected on the basis of academic or professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential in their fields.

Wisdom is one of about 800 U.S. faculty and professionals who travel abroad each year to conduct research in a variety of academic and professional fields. Wisdom has a M.S. in wildlife science from New Mexico State University and a Ph.D. in forestry, range, and wildlife from the University of Idaho.

In 2001, PNW Research Station scientist Ching-Yan Li received a Fulbright scholarship to conduct research at Nicholas Copernicus University in Poland.





The PNW Research Station is headquartered in Portland, Oregon. It has 11 laboratories and centers located in Alaska, Oregon, and Washington and about 425 employees.
