Clint Boal, PhD

Assistant Unit Leader - Texas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit

Research Interests

Clint directs research targeted at building upon our basic understanding of species and systems while meeting the more applied management information needs of natural resource managers. His primary research interest is the ecology and conservation of birds of prey, especially as high trophic level members of biotic communities. Second is a focus on ecology and conservation of wildlife in arid environments; this has become especially relevant in context of climate change. Third is the ecology of avian species in the tropics, including how both resident and migrant species cope with severe weather events, anthropogenic driven landscape changes, and climate changes.

Teaching Interests

Clint teaches courses in Raptor Ecology, Structured Decision Making in Natural Resources Management, and Advanced Nongame Ecology; he also co-teaches a course in Tropical Ecology and an undergraduate field course in Tropical Avian Ecology.
