About this Research:
Wildlife and Fish
Bird Monitoring: Bird monitoring research in our laboratory has been an ongoing effort since wildlife research began here in 1982. In the last 25+ years, approximately two million censuses, captures, and field evaluations of birds and their habitats have been conducted on Marbled Murrelets and landbirds.
Herpetology: Includes the studies of the autecology and community structure of forest and riparian-associated herpetofauna in redwood and Douglas-fir/hardwood forests, investigations of the application of reptiles and amphibians as indicators for monitoring the status of ecosystems, and the investigations of the possible mechanisms contributing to declines in amphibians.
Invasive Species: Research by PSW scientists demonstrates that introduced trout and other species have caused major changes in abundance and distribution of native amphibians, zooplankton, and benthic invertebrates, changes likely to result in federal endangered species listings. Scientists are looking at the impacts of introduced fishes on invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and bats.
