restoration ecology

Debinski, Diane

Professor, Department Head
Ecology
Montana State University

I conduct research in the fields of conservation biology, landscape ecology, and restoration ecology.  Some of the specific topics of my research include biodiversity preservation, effects of habitat fragmentation, and climate change.  In grasslands, my research has focused on evaluating the use of fire and grazing in the context of managing for plant, bird, and pollinator communities. In montane meadows I have been conducting both observational and experimental studies of community responses to drought and environmental variation.

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.
