Vertebrate Zoology Program

Preble's Meadow Jumping Mouse by Hannah Griscom

Ian Abernethy is head of our vertebrate zoology program. He is responsible for managing all vertebrate zoology activities at WYNDD.  Current programmatic foci are developing core data on the distribution, natural history, conservation status, and habitat requirements of rare vertebrate animal species in Wyoming. This is accomplished through field research projects, ecological modeling, and review of existing literature and museum resources. Ian received his B.S. in Biology and Environment and Natural Resources and an M.S. in Zoology and Physiology. Previous work includes evaluating the effects of anthropogenic disturbance and on small mammals.
