Community and foraging ecology and social behavior of mammals and birds; evolution and biogeography of North and South American rodents
My research interests focus on the ecology, behavior, and conservation of birds, mammals, and amphibians. Recent projects with my graduate students and other collaborators include: effects of tidal restriction on breeding success in Saltmarsh Sharptailed Sparrows in Maine; status and conservation of Rusty Blackbirds in northern Maine; behavior of amphibian larvae in relation to environmental stressors, including predators and UV radiation; community structure of amphibians in Acadia National Park and effects of beavers on species distributions; wintering ecology, population responses, and conservation of Harlequin Ducks in Maine; foraging habitat selection and roosting habitats of bats in coastal Maine.
