Tabitha Graves, Spatial wildlife biologist


I evaluate the effects of stressors on wildlife habitat, distributions, disease, and demographics using spatially-explicit approaches, large datasets, and tools including genetics, remote sensing, hierarchical models, climate models, and GPS collars.  Current project subjects include huckleberries, bumblebees, chronic wasting disease, bighorn, mountain goats, mule deer, elk, black bears, and grizzly bears.
