Field of research                                                                                                                                             

 

My research involves understanding the factors that affect the abundance and diversity of wild species as they are affected by features of the landscape.  The work involves a range scales from the perception of individual animals to the impact of several entire populations upon each other. 

Typically, I prefer to work with small mammals.  However, I have also conducted field work on plants, snails, butterflies, anurans, and deer.  In addition to field work, I develop models to test basic hypotheses concerning the ways in which different levels of ecological organization can affect higher levels of organization.  Principally, this involves modeling behavioral traits to determine their importance in population or community processes that occur over large spatial and temporal scales. 

Although I do not frequently focus on endangered species or game animals, I and my students and postdocs have worked on three federally endangered species (Alabama Beach Mouse, Iowa Pleistocene Snail, Mount Graham Red Squirrel), and whitetail deer.
