Population ecology

Litt, Andrea

Assistant Professor
Montana State University - Bozeman

My primary research interests include understanding the effects of abiotic and biotic factors on wildlife communities and populations, studying a diversity of animal taxonomic groups that will best help to answer the questions of interest, and collecting information that can be used to develop practical solutions to ecological problems and guide policy and management.

Lowe, Winsor

Associate Professor
Division of Biological Sciences
The University of Montana - Missoula

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.
