My research focuses on small vertebrates to anthropogenic and natural woodland disturbances. Current research projects are evaluating the use of artificial nest box use at vineyard sites, the implications of Sudden Oak Death (SOD) disease on wildlife, and the response of wildlife to prescribed burning in oak woodland. Information from these studies is used in Extension workshops and written materials on the management and conservation of oak woodlands.
