Eby, Lisa

Associate Professor
Ecosystem and Conservation Sciences
The University of Montana - Missoula

Each year, I teach Fish Biology, Advanced Fisheries, Research Design, and Special Topics in Aquatic Ecology. I work to collaborate with management and conservation agencies to identify key questions and unknowns in our scientific understanding that is critical for management decisions. My research involves a range of projects.

Guy, Christopher

Associate Professor / Assistant Unit Leader
Department of Ecology-MT Cooperative Fishery Research Unit
Montana State University - Bozeman

I am the Assistant Unit Leader of the U.S. Geological Survey-Montana Cooperative Fishery Research Unit (MTCFRU) at Montana State University. The Unit is housed in the Department of Ecology-Fish and Wildlife Management Program.

Kershner, Jeff

Center Director
Ecology
USGS Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center

For most of my career, I’ve worked on a variety of issues that are related to the effects of land management practices on aquatic and riparian resources. My past research includes work on native salmonids in Idaho, Utah and Wyoming, explores various aspects of aquatic and riparian resource monitoring, and looks at fire effects on streams and riparian areas.

McMahon, Thomas

Professor of Fisheries
Ecology/Fish & Wildlife Ecology & Management Program
Montana State University - Bozeman

Research interests are fish ecology and management. I teach the following courses at MSU: WILD 201 Introduction to Fish and Wildlife, WILD 301 Principles of Fish and Wildlife Management (with Bob Garrott), BIOO 415 Ichthyology, WILD 513 Fisheries Habitat Management, and MSSE Ecology of Trout Streams (with Billie Kerans).

Muhlfeld, Clint

Triska, Maggie

Conservation Scientist
Round River Conservation Studies
Round River Conservation Studies

I have a Ph.D. in Restoration Ecology (from the University of Western Australia) and a Masters in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology (from Frostburg State University). My research uses statistical/spatial models and field data to improve monitoring systems and better understand the factors that influence species distributions over time - with a management and/or conservation focus. I am predominantly a mammalogist, but I have experience working with reptiles, invertebrates, and plants.

Zale, Alexander

Professor and Unit Leader
Montana Cooperative Fishery Research Unit and Ecology
Montana State University - Bozeman

I lead, coordinate, and administer an applied fisheries research program addressing topics and issues of concern to the State of Montana and the U.S. Department of the Interior. Technical areas of special emphasis include restoration of native fishes, whirling disease, thermal ecology, population dynamics and effects of exotic fishes, and effects of environmental degradation on recreational salmonid fisheries. I advise graduate students and teach a graduate level course entitled Human Dimensions of Fish and wildlife Management.
