Population, Landscape, and Space Use-Ecology
I have focused my research activities in the field of applied ecology in an attempt to understand environmental factors affecting the distribution and abundance of animals in managed ecosystems. I attempt to incorporate theoretical and empirical approaches to better understand how animal populations respond to environmental stressors. My research is focused at several levels, ranging from understanding space-use of individuals, the effect of individual performance to population dynamics, and ultimately to the landscape scale.
