Scholarly Poster


The shrubsteppe ecosystem of western North America is threatened by multiple, increasing threats that may interact to affect ecosystem dynamics. The focus of my research is to determine whether two threats, wildfire and outdoor recreation may have interactive or additive effects on the diet and nesting ecology of Golden Eagles (Aquila chrysaetos) in southwestern Idaho. Understanding combined effects of these threats will have critical management implications in our changing world.
