Research Interests

At the hands of the burgeoning human population, many species of plants and animals around the world are experiencing range contraction, extirpation, and the possibility of extinction. Land managers and conservation biologists alike are faced with the problem of how to best meld the latest ecological and evolutionary research with their management practices. When dealing with a declining species, scientists must figure out the key research necessary to develop the wisest strategies to reverse and halt the decline. I am working with the California red-legged frog at the Elkhorn Slough as a model system to develop a plan that combines applied conservation and management with research in population dynamics and habitat selection
