Area of Expertise: Effects of natural and human disturbances on wildlife and biodiversity


Welcome to the Applied Forest and Wildlife Ecology Laboratory in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Michigan State University. We conduct applied research on all aspects of wildlife ecology, but our research tends to focus on the relationships between wildlife and forest management. Here, “forest management” refers to a variety of activities including the mechanized harvesting of trees, chemical control of competing vegetation, biomass harvesting, and use of prescribed fire for ecological restoration.
