Ozark Mesopredator Study
Wildlife Ecology Research and Management
My research involves using traditional methods as well as current noninvasive survey techniques and statistical modeling procedures to study population and community ecology both locally and internationally. My research interests are mainly focused on the conservation of mammal communities, but also mesopredator release and trophic cascades, the urban/suburban wildlife interface, species invasions, and human dimensions of conservation and sustainable development in the tropics.
THOUGHTS ON RACCOONS
Though we sometimes villainize them, we should really be honored that the northern raccoon (Procyon lotor) loves us so much that they are trying to emulate the human model.
Everything I eat is from the earth right?
I am what I eat, straight up earth right?
Nothing but a walking sack of earth
Nice to meet you!
