My general research interest is the conservation and management of wildlife species, especially with respect to anthropogenic influences such as landscape level changes and energy development.  I attempt to use research to build upon our basic understanding of species and systems while meeting the more applied management information needs of natural resource managers. In this context, my current research has been focused on conservation and management of wildlife in the prairie grasslands, especially lesser prairie-chickens and northern bobwhite, but am also involved in research of migrant and resident birds in the Caribbean, and ecology of birds of prey.  My personal research interest is in predator - prey relationships, especially in the role of such relationships in the stability of natural communities.
