Foresman, Kerry

Professor of Biology and Wildlife Biology
Division of Biological Sciences
The University of Montana
Professional Summary: 

My primary research interests fall in the realm of mammalian ecology/physiology. I have studied the reproductive biology a numerous mammalian species (soricids, ursids, mustelids) and have directed studies on the reintroduction of sensitive and threatened species (fisher, swift fox, black-tailed praire dogs) as well as disease ecology studies (e.g., plague, relapsing fever). My recent book, Mammals of Montana, summarizes information on all 109 of Montana's mammal species and is used as a reference source for agency personnel as well as K-12 programs. I received my Ph.D. at the University of Idaho and held a post-doctoral position at the University of Tennessee before accepting a position in the Biology Department at the University of Rhode Island where I taught for five years. I have been a professor at UM in both the OBE program in DBS as well as the WBIO program for the past 29 years.
