Clint Otto is a Research Ecologist for the USGS Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center in Jamestown, North Dakota.
The principle goal of my research program is to investigate the impacts of land-use change on wildlife habitat and ecosystem services in the Prairie Pothole Region. Much of my research focuses on the development of decision-support tools for informing natural resource policy and management. Some of my current research projects include modeling the effects of agricultural land-use change on pollinator habitat, health and national pollination services. I am also working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to quantify the benefits of land conservation programs on pollinator habitat and other ecosystem services.
