Biography

Doug Keinath is a Ph.D candidate in the Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit and the Department of Zoology and Physiology.

Research Interest

Doug grew up in central Michigan. He received bachelor’s degrees in Engineering and Natural Resources from the University of Michigan in 1993. He then spent several years working for environmental consultants in Washington DC, where he worked closely with organizations such as USAID and the World Bank on global climate change issues. This work fostered an interested in species biological responses to disturbance, which led to Doug return to school and pursue a master’s degree in Zoology from the University of Wyoming. He completed his Master’s degree in 2000, in which he studied the response of small mammals to timber harvest. Since then, Doug has worked as the lead zoologist for the Wyoming Natural Diversity Database, a service and research unit of the University of Wyoming and part of the Natural Heritage Network. In this capacity, he keeps a database of information on Wyoming’s sensitive fauna and directs field survey efforts across the state, focusing largely on under-represented taxa including small mammals, songbirds, and amphibians.
