Current Research

My research focuses primarily on basic amphibian ecology and the impacts of forest management practices on amphibian communities. The long-range goals of my research are:To determine the impacts of various forest management practices (including fragmentation) on amphibiansTo determine likely consequences of climatic changes on amphibiansTo develop guidelines for managing southern forest ecosystems to ensure healthy populations of amphibiansTo develop and evaluate alternative monitoring protocols for amphibiansTo develop and validate predictive habitat relationship models for amphibians.
