Advisor Natural Resources III, Asst. Director, SDFEC
Gilbert assists in all levels of forest management of the Solon Dixon Forestry Education Center, including the management of its 5,350 acres, the center's GIS system, and the facilitation of activities and instruction for user groups.
Research Assistant III
Harges works with the Southern Forest Nursery Management Cooperative to plan, implement, and communicate applied research to the Nursery Cooperative members as well as the forest nursery community. The research he conducts is focused on seedling quality, production, and outplanting survival.
Research Associate II, Hydrology
Isik collects, synthesizes, and analyzes environmental, meteorological, soil, and water data to test new modules of the Wetland Water Quality model (WetQual) beside maintaining the development of the WetQual.
Postdoctoral Fellow, Wildlife Sciences
Klingbeil studies how environmental changes (energy availability, land use, and climate) influence biodiversity of North American birds to develop predictive models that can inform conservation decisions.
Research Fellow IV, Ecology
Kush performs research related to forest stand dynamics, fire ecology, and restoration ecology; teaches undergraduate and graduate classes in these subject areas; and is an affiliate faculty with the Office of University Writing.
Research Assistant I, Plant Pathology
Mendez will be managing Dr. Eckhardt's lab, and he will be using his knowledge of plant pathology to help graduate students with their projects.
Research Associate III, Wildlife Sciences
Newbolt manages research operations at the Deer Research Laboratory facility in Camp Hill, Ala., and assists graduate students with current projects. His primary research interests include ungulate reproductive ecology and wildlife census methods.
Research Assistant IV, Forestry
Payne plans and conducts field research and disseminates information related to herbicide use, weed control and other production issues in bareroot and container nurseries for the Southern Forest Nursery Management Cooperative.
Richard Stanton, Jr.
Stanton is developing models of population dynamics and regulation in migratory birds that inform decision analyses and identify priority regions for habitat management.
Research Associate III, Forestry
Stokes develops research protocols, conducts field research and disseminates research results on water and carbon relations, environmental and silvicultural influences on physiological response, and physiological mechanisms controlling productivity in forest trees.
Research Associate II, Wildlife Sciences
Williams oversees a research project focused on the habits, impacts, and management of wild pigs on Lowndes Wildlife Management Area.
Instructor, Natural Resources
Wyman teaches courses within the human dimensions of natural resources field on topics that include conservation social science, environmental education, environmental interpretation, ecotourism, and conflict and collaboration in natural resource management.
Research Fellow II, Ecosystem Modeling, GIS and Remote Sensing
Yang investigates the dynamics of ecosystem structure and functioning in context of environmental changes (such as climate change, rising CO2 concentration, and land cover change) by using ecosystem modeling, spatial analysis and remote sensing.
