Biography

Clint Boal received his PhD from the University of Arizona, was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Minnesota, and has been with the Texas Unit since 2000.

Teaching Interest

Clint regularly teaches courses in Raptor Ecology and Management and in Structured Decision Making in Natural Resources Management. In the past, he has taught Advanced Nongame Ecology, Tropical Ecology, and an undergraduate introductory field course in Tropical Avian Ecology.

Research Interest

Clint directs research that builds on our basic understanding of species and systems while meeting the more applied management information needs of natural resource managers. His primary research interest is the ecology and conservation of birds of prey, especially as high trophic level members of biotic communities. Second is a focus on ecology and conservation of wildlife in arid environments, especially in context of anthropogenic influences and landscape changes.
