Brett A. DeGregorio, PhD

Unit Leader - Arkansas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit

I worked with the Department of Defense (ERDC-CERL) for 5 years studying wildlife conservation issues on military installations all over the country before beginning my current position with the Arkansas Cooperative Research Unit in 2019. My students and I study the movement ecology, habitat use, distribution, and behavioral responses to anthropogenic disturbance, community ecology, predator prey ecology of reptiles, birds, and mammals. Many of my current projects utilize wildlife game cameras to monitor community level changes and behavioral responses to human activity or development. My work is adaptable and flexible as my research program is tailored to work closely with the needs of our state cooperators, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. My students and I endeavor to study wildlife issues all over the state of Arkansas. I teach several courses at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville including Wildlife Management and Conservation in Arkansas and Conservation Biology. <br><br>
