Jay A VonBank, PhD

Jay VonBank is a Research Ecologist at the USGS Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center in Jamestown, North Dakota.

Dr. Jay VonBank’s research at NPWRC uses the movement ecology framework to understand impacts of environmental and land-use change on migratory bird population performance, particularly in waterfowl. His work explores intra- and inter-annual regional movements, behavioral influences on habitat use, spatiotemporal energy expenditure, and the influences of decision-making during migration on breeding performance on waterfowl and wetland bird species throughout midcontinental North America.
