Welcome to the Quantitative Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Lab in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Oregon State University. We work on ongoing basic and applied research in the Neotropics, Alaska, Oregon, and in the deciduous forests of Northeastern North America. Our research interests are very diverse, but typically address policy at the interface of human and natural systems. For example, we are interested in how anthropogenic disturbance to ecosystems influences the emergence of infectious disease, how to balance the allocation of salmon between humans and wildlife, and how to manage wildlife to meet livelihood and conservation goals in the Neotropics.
How does the presence of one species influence other species? Are
