Don White Jr.
Area(s) of Expertise
I am broadly interested in the biology, ecology, conservation, and management of large mammals, particularly carnivores and ungulates. My research is focused on science issues relevant to wildlife management and conservation needs, including wildlife-habitat relationships, effects of climate change, population genetics, social science and human dimensions, nutritional ecology, reproduction, disease, and understanding the impacts of land management practices on population dynamics. The over-arching theme behind my research interests is developing scientific tools and knowledge to support sound natural resource conservation and management, such that both ecosystem integrity and sustainable human communities are maintained.
