ESM Logo

Wildlife Habitat Restoration Ecology Lab

ESM Laboratory. Agriculture C 2005 and 31. We seek to bridge basic and applied aspects of habitat restoration ecology to better understand how to restore the functionality of and mitigate impacts to forest and rangeland wildlife habitats following large-scale anthropogenic and natural disturbances. A particular emphasis of our research is concerned with restoration efforts relative to species inhabiting sagebrush steppe ecosystems. Contact: Jeff Beck (
