My current research focuses on monitoring systems and exploring climate change policy and research management.
My past studies have explored the effects of clearcut logging on small mammals in southeast Alaska; mating systems, habitat, and song patterning in winter wrens; population dynamics and habitat relationships of Townsend's ground squirrels; and prairie dog metapopulations and management.
Why This Research is Important
My research focuses on processes linking population change in animals to food habits and habitat features. Understanding these processes allows for better predictions of the effects of management or other habitat change on population dynamics.
