connectivity

Broberg, Len

Professor
Environmental Studies
University of Montana

My research interests focus on large landscape interactions including connectivity and climate change responses and adaptation. Currently I have students working with the Western Transportation Institute, Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribe and the Montana Department of Transportation studying the effectiveness of various wildlife crossings along US Highway 93. I also have a student working on the nesting habitat of Lewis' Woodpeckers in western Montana. My focus is on terrestrial wildlife habitat needs and conservation.

I'm interested in how spatial processes influence evolution, population biology, and community ecology. I am especially excited about using direct data on animal movement to explore the causes and consequences of dispersal. I hope this work will expand basic understanding of the ecology and evolution of dispersal, and improve landscape-scale management and conservation efforts.
