In the Terrestrial Wildlife Ecology Lab, we study responses of wildlife to changes in land use and cover. We test ecological theory while providing wildlife managers with the information, methods, and tools needed to make science-based management decisions.

  • Summer 2017- Adriane Baade presented a researcher poster on her capstone project at this year's Annual Meeting of the American Society of Mammalogists in Moscow, Idaho. The meeting included diverse oral and poster presentations, technical workshops, and social events. Adriane was able to network with some of the best-known researchers in the field, and she was able to successfully locate potential graduate programs/mentors.
  • Winter 2017- Adriane Baade, Mary Hernandez, and Summer Wilson presented research posters with their mentor, Dr. Jenny Duggan, at the Annual Wildlife Symposium held by the California Central Coast chapter of The Wildlife Center on January 12, 2017. The posters were well received and provided a great opportunity for students to network with local wildlife biologists. The California Central Coast chapter of The Wildlife Society plans to expand activities, such as lecture series/social hours, into Monterey this year; stay tuned for updates!
