Organizations and Affiliations:
Avian population ecology, particularly the estimation of survival rates and reproductive success as a key element in the conservation and management of species and their ecosystems.
The effect of abiotic factors (climate, flooding, etc.)on avian survival and reproductive rates, and the changes in demographic parameters that may result from long-term climate changes or anthropogenic landscape influences. I am currently working on the population ecology of the Northern Spotted Owl in southern Oregon, Adelie Penguins in Antarctica, and tropical forest birds in Puerto Rico.
