Todd Katzner’s research group formerly in the Division of Forestry and Natural Resources at West Virginia University focuses on conservation ecology of wildlife in North America and worldwide. We address questions of wildlife conservation by focusing on application of unique techniques and approaches to field ecology. Our approaches include novel non-invasive mark-recapture studies,high-frequency GPS-GSM telemetry systems, and conceptual approaches to monitoring systems. We integrate these novel tools with classical techniques – simulation modeling to understand demography, classical lab approaches to understand wildlife toxicology, and standard monitoring of wildlife.

 Current studies in our lab focus on a number of issues, including:
