Rose Graves

Research Emphasis:

I am interested in identifying spatial patterns of wildlife and plant distributions, the processes that result in those distributions, and the changes that can be predicted in those patterns over time and different climate and land-use scenarios. Broadly, my research interests can be categorized as:conservation biology, landscape ecology, spatial dynamics of wildlife populations, land-use patterns and ecosystems, forest ecology, ecological modeling, and wildlife ecology
