Dr. Holly K. Ober

Research: Forestry/Wildlife Systems

Dr. Ober conducts applied research in wildlife ecology to better understand mechanisms that explain the abundance, distribution, and diversity of forest dwelling wildlife, as well as to develop management practices that reduce conflicts between humans and forest dependent species. Recent research has examined the influence of forest management and restoration activities on a variety of taxa (i.e., bats, woodpeckers, turkeys, and invertebrates), human dimensions of wildlife conservation (gopher tortoises and sea turtles), and identified tactics to moderate wildlife damage (deer and armadillos).
