Current Research

  • Bioacoustics of pacific northwest forests
  • Land management influences on wildlife interactions and space use
  • Biology and ecology of the northern spotted owl
  • Responses of northern spotted owls to landscape and wildlife community changes

Research Interests

  • Wildlife Ecology and Management
  • Population Dynamics 
  • Resource Selection
  • Space Use
  • Bioacoustics
  • Community Ecology
  • Wildlife Monitoring
  • Postfledging Neotropical Migrant Songbirds
  • Northern Spotted Owl

Past Research

Past research topics have included long-term trends in northern spotted owl dispersal and resource selection, studies of songbird community response to timber management in the midwest; and postfledging and nesting ecology of neotropical migrant songbirds.

Why This Research is Important

By understanding the effects of land use practices and environmental change on wildlife species and identifying factors regulating populations of managment concern, we are better able to assess habitats and assist with conservation planning at landscape and ecoregional-scales.
