Integrating wildlife conservation into sustainable forest stewardship
In our rapidly changing world, the integration of wildlife conservation into sustainable forest stewardship represents an important, yet daunting challenge.  To identify those species and communities in need of conservation action, I study the response of temperate and tropical forest-dwelling wildlife to environmental change through experimentation and long-term monitoring, and demographic modeling. In addition to applied wildlife conservation and management, I study bird molt, an understudied yet critical phase of the avian lifecycle. Specifically, I assess how selective pressures influenced avian molt strategies in temperate and tropical systems.
