Research at the SC Unit focuses primarily on questions of importance to our cooperators that require high-quality data and analysis to address natural resource management issues. Areas of emphasis include ecology and conservation of terrestrial, freshwater, and marine fish & wildlife, conservation physiology, aquatic ecology, foraging ecology, movement ecology, functional ecology, and human-wildlife interactions.
