RESEARCH INTERESTS

Organismic Biology/Ecology, Anuran Diversity, Natural History, and Conservation

 

CURRENT RESEARCH

I am investigating the amphibian response to restored and reclaimed ecosystems, namely prairie pothole wetlands in Northwestern Iowa and coal spoil grasslands in Southern Indiana. The goals of my dissertation research in Indiana will be to establish management guidelines and repatriation protocols for Crawfish Frogs (Lithobates areolatus), a State-Endangered Species.
