David A Hewitt, Ph.D.

I primarily help to guide a research and monitoring program for two endangered catostomids in the Upper Klamath Basin of Oregon and California. We use quantitative tools such as capture-recapture to investigate the ecology of the species and factors inhibiting their recovery. Technology for detection of passive integrated transponders (PIT tags) plays a central role.
