OUR RESEARCH

A greater understanding of how wildlife populations–and their associated communities and ecosystems–respond to environmental change is essential for developing science-informed strategies to conserve Earth’s biodiversity. The WECOS Lab uses a combination of natural history observations, field-based monitoring, traditional and cutting-edge laboratory techniques, geographic information systems, statistical modeling bioinformatics analyses, and citizen science to investigate the ecological consequences of human-mediated environmental change using diverse taxonomic models (e.g., brown bear, American marten, wild boar, snowshoe hare, blue-spotted salamander, waterfowl). Consequently, our research extends beyond conservation ecology into other disciplines including microbiology, human dimensions of natural resource management, geography, and postsecondary science education.
