In my lab we do research within and across three broad themes: landscape ecology and management, gamebird ecology and management, and sustainable agriculture and forestry. Birds and insects are the common taxa studied--a lot of quail work! We typical work in managed ecosystems where food, fiber, forage, and bioenergy is produced. We use robust quantitative techniques to analyze data and make decisions. Furthermore, we work with decision makers (i.e., agencies) to improve the conservation of natural resources.
I currently teach Conservation Decision Making, Principles of Wildlife Habitat, Wildlife Internships, and a First Year Seminar.
