In collaboration with my graduate students and post-docs, my research focuses on conservation planning for threatened and endangered species; science-based management of public lands to conserve biological diversity; population dynamics and viability analyses for at-risk species; and vertebrate demography and life history. For over three decades my research has emphasized the management of forest ecosystems to sustain biological diversity with a particular focus on spotted owls and other imperiled species. I also work extensively at the interface between science and policy formulation on public lands in the U.S including service on two federal advisory committees and a National Research Council panel.  My teaching focuses on the application of quantitative methods to the design and analysis of ecological studies.
