I study the joint ecological and evolutionary consequences of using human-managed habitats as wildlife habitat. In 2002 I began a long-term research project on how hayfield and pasture management affects the life-histories of grassland songbirds. Along with ecology and evolution work, this project has expanded to create and explore federal policies that balance landowners' economic and birds' life-history needs. Additional projects include: studying gray squirrel ecology on the UNE campus; exploring the ecology of urban roof-nesting Herring Gulls; evaluating the marsh bird communities on the Saco River; exploring if federal funded forestry practices actually support the bird communities as intended; and identifying the migration and wintering location of the Caribbean Martin and Lesser Antillean Nighthawk.
