Unit Leader - Louisiana Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit
Dr. King is interested in wetland systems and wetland-dependent wildlife. His students study a wide range of wetland processes and wetland wildlife, however, the ultimate focus is to better understand wetland systems to guide their conservation, restoration, and management.
Dr. King team teaches graduate courses in wetlands and floodplain ecology as well as special field-based courses on selected wetlands around the country. He believes that integrating classroom work with targeted, intensive field trips creates the greatest learning opportunities for students. Past special topics courses have included wetlands in the Ridge and Basin and Middle Rio Grande regions.
