- Targeted grazing or tree thinning: which best improves forest stand resilience to wildfire (i.e., crown fires)? For answers, check out our new paper in Ecosphere.
- If you’re interested in how large-scale fire and grassland restoration gets done, check out our AERLive workshop!
- One of our photos made the cover of Ecological Solutions and Evidence!
- Rare birds? Regime shifts? Scale detection via Asymmetric Eigenvector Maps?? Check out our new ms in Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution if you’re interested in a quirky look at spatial resilience.
- The Wildlife Society covered our paper! Check out their news feed.
- Big news!! We got a grant with the US Fish & Wildlife Service to develop a mapping tool to quantify grassland management outcomes. See the new project on the Research page.
- We’re hiring two summer technicians!! Check out the job ad for more information.
- Also, if you’re interested in ecological resilience and think “wombling” is a hilarious word, check out our new paper in Ecological Indicators.
- Big, hot, and connected fires restored grassland bird species! Read our new paper in Ecological Solutions and Evidence to find out more!
- Lots of press for the Living Landscapes Lab in the New Year: an article in the Wildlife Management Institute’s Outdoor News Bulletin, a publication alert and an “Ask an Expert interview” with the Lesser Prairie-Chicken Initiative, and an upcoming press release by University of Arkansas.
- Our upcoming paper in Ecological Solutions and Evidence on grassland bird responses to prescribed fire was featured in Discover Magazine! We hope the paper will be published in the New Year!
- +1 article for November: Dr. DeGregorio’s lab and I collaborated to investigate responses of nine-banded armadillo activity patterns to human development/noise. Check it out in Ecology and Evolution!
- Welcome to our new MS student and secretive marshbird expert, Jess Schmit! Jess will start in spring 2022, and she will be co-advised by Caleb and Dr. Fournier. Jess will study King Rail migration and habitat usage.
- Our new article in Ecological Applications shows how new tech/methods can provide early warnings of woody invasions and help rapidly adapt management. Stay tuned for more press on this one!
- Mike Shaw will be joining the Living Landscapes Lab this fall too! Mike will be an MS student co-advised by Caleb and Dr. DeGregorio and will study Eastern Spotted Skunk.
- I have another essay out in Terrain.org! I talk about my experiences as a person of Hispanic heritage during my first field internship. Check it out if you’re interested!
- Very happy to announce that Percy Marshall will be joining the Living Landscapes Lab this fall! They will be pursuing their MS and studying invasive waterfowl.
- Also, very proud to be a coauthor on another publication led by Dr. Donovan! It’s the best of our fire + resilience + savanna/grassland ecotone papers yet!
- We have a new publication in Journal of Mammalogy led by Dr. Victoria Donovan! Check it out if you’re interested in bighorn sheep and/or fire.
- Website launched
- I’m hiring a Master’s student for an invasive species ecology and management project! Check out this link for more information.
