- Large mammal population ecology with an emphasis on conservation of native species and control of non-native species within protected areas.
- Methods for estimating the abundance and composition of large mammal populations
- Restoration of extirpated species to historical ranges
Research Interests: My interests focus on multi-disciplinary studies of large mammal populations that include the interactions of demographics, conservation genetics, and disease epidemiology and have implications for the successful management of these populations. I have been involved in studies of the demographics of Yellowstone bison and the conservation genetics and management of bison throughout North America, with an emphasis on those herds managed by the U. S. Department of Interior. I have contributed to plans to reintroduce European bison to portions of their native range in Poland, Romania, and Russia. I maintain a long-standing interest in the biology and management of non-native ungulate species on public lands, particularly in California.
