Patrick Kleeman is a Supervisory Ecologist at the Western Ecological Research Center.
Patrick Kleeman's research focuses on the ecology and conservation biology of amphibians. Topics of study within these categories include population demography through capture-mark-recapture methods, habitat use by using radiotelemetry, and phenology of breeding as evidenced by vocalizations. His research also examines what role stressors such as environmental contaminants, disease, and climate may have on amphibian populations.
