Educational Background:
Amherst College B.A.
Harvard University M.A.
U. Massachussetts Ph.D.
Courses Taught:
comparative anatomy, animal behavior introductory biology environmental science
Research Interests:
human effects on wildlife.
evolution on islands
fossil birds.
Thesis Topics:
Sort and identify collection of bones from a Pleistocene pond in the Chino Area. Involves some work in Irvine sorting � then identification work in Claremont.
Winter bird use of the Bernard Field Station are birds using the field station, or the areas nearby � conduct spot counts at various localities - identify dependence on neighbors, lake, etc.
The corridor concept � value to wildlife in urban areas.
Analysis of kill rates on highways with and without wildlife underpasses.
evolution of island Peromyscus (deer mice) comparison of modern mice with a collection 7000 years old.
evolution of island Chendytes � change in bone structure in an extinct flightless goose over the period of its fossil record. Also any evidence of sexual dimorphism.
consideration of oaks as islands for insect and bird faunas.
compare field station oaks with campus � insect diversity � based on isolation and plot size and % of native plants available.
effects of introduced parasites on caterpillars (butterfly and moths)
specificity of color in mating attraction. how specific is color preference?
