Conservation Ecology in Shared Landscapes

Research in the Smith Lab focuses on how to best preserve the ecological roles of carnivores and herbivores in shared landscapes by investigating human-wildlife interactions and risk effects in both predator and prey.

Advancing Methods in Spatial and Behavioral Ecology

We collaborate with scientists across disciplines to employ the most cutting-edge and effective methods available to investigate ecological relationships and conservation problems.

Public Outreach and Collaboration

Our mission as group includes making our research accessible, relatable, and relevant to the public and encouraging public involvement in science.
