Our research group is interested in a wide variety of conservation related research problems. Most of our research focuses on identifying characteristics of species that put them at risk to human-caused threats, understanding why (or how) these characteristics put a species at risk, and to determining how best to reduce the risk. We have been working, in particular, on the effects of habitat loss and fragmentation on extinction risk and population viability, and on the dynamics and extinction risk of small and declining populations.
