Wayne E Thogmartin, PhD

I am a quantitative ecologist conducting scholarly research at the intersection of animal ecology, spatial analyses, and statistics. My interests are in population ecology for animals declining in abundance, asking new questions of multiple, combined data sets to gain novel insight into the dynamics of animal populations, and translating science into guidance for practical management decisions.
