Why a science adviser?

Because scientists know how to do science.

Jerod is a wildlife ecologist aiming to be a professor in the not-too-distant future. His statistical and theoretical skills provide a powerful compliment to Bethann’s. When we collaborate with you, the result will be a project that says what you mean to say, without compromising scientific accuracy.

Here’s the nitty gritty on Jerod.

Ph.D. candidate, Department of Biology (Université Laval)
M.S. in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology (University of Montana)
B.S. in Rangeland, Watershed, and Wildlife Resources with emphasis in Wildlife Science and minor in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (University of Arizona)

Jerod says:

I am currently a Ph.D. student at Université Laval, studying the behavioral mechanisms behind spatio-temporal dynamics of populations.  My work is based on field observation, aerial surveys, and GPS collar-based movement data of free-ranging plains bison (Bison bison) in Prince Albert National Park, Saskatchewan.

In addition, I have a wide range of research and conservation interests, ranging from predator-prey dynamics to reducing human-wildlife conflicts.  I anticipate a research-based career, and look forward to contributing to advancing ecological knowledge, and enhancing management and conservation of wildlife populations.  More at Jerod’s research website.

I also am keen to go hunting, fishing, hiking, and mountain biking when I can, but when I am at home I like cooking, eating good food, tinkering with things, and thinking about being outside.
