Quantitative Wildlife Ecology
Main interests involve the quantification of the impact of climate change and human activities such as overexploitation (i.e., overfishing, overharvesting) on wildlife game (e.g., northern bobwhite) and non-game (e.g., albatross) bird populations (e.g., survival, reproductive performance). Modelling population dynamics allows for projections under various scenarios of change in climate and activities, which are helpful to propose alternative management/conservation strategies.
