Christopher "Digger" Anthony

I am a Wildlife Biologist at the USGS Forest and Rangeland Ecosystem Science Center. My research broadly focuses on investigating the responses of terrestrial wildlife populations and their habitat to disturbances within the sagebrush biome of the western U.S.

I work with a research team of plant and restoration ecologists to assess the effectiveness of land treatments after wildfire. I primarily evaluate how variation in cattle grazing and exotic annual grasses effects restoration interventions and ecological trajectories post-fire. Additionally, I investigate how restoration treatments influence habitat use and population dynamics of wildlife species such as the Greater Sage-grouse.
