Environmental Biology, Principles of Biology I and II Lab
My research interests are diverse, but have always been applied and conservation-oriented in nature. I have always been interested in the relationships between increasing human development and ecosystems. My specific interests center on avian conservation, particularly shorebird ecology. Much of my work has focused on the wintering ecology of threatened and endangered shorebirds, but I also have worked with the breeding biology of woodpeckers in bottomland hardwood forests. In addition, I am interested in statistical modeling of ecological parameters that managers can use to effectively manage species of concern and ecosystem health.
