Current Research

Current research focuses on the impacts of coyotes, non-native in the Southeast, on deer and other wildlife. Other studies include the following: an assessment of the effects of coarse woody debris in structuring avian communities in southern forests; survival and habitat use by red-headed woodpeckers; factors determining use of group selection harvest gaps in bottomland hardwoods by forest birds; the effects of restoration of Carolina bays (isolated depression wetlands) on forest birds and bats; the effects of season of burn on wild turkey hens and poults, and a comparison of wild turkey gobbler mortality in a hunted versus an unhunted population.
