Episode 6 of Series 10: Anthropogenic Behavior Change Transcript

We discuss tactics such as habitat restoration, population augmentation, and ecosystem recovery to protect diverse species and ecosystems while minimizing conflicts.

Guests:  Dr. Elizabeth Peterson is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Biological Sciences, Eastern Illinois University. In the Elizabeth K. Peterson Lab
she uses integrative research methods to study how anthropogenic stressors impact behavioral responses and adaptive life history strategies that are important for fitness at the individual and population levels, to develop methods to improve species conservation.

Dr. Rachel Chock serves San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance as a Postdoctoral Associate in Recovery Ecology. As a behavioral ecologist, her research involves combining the fields of animal behavior, ecology, and applied conservation. She is particularly interested in recovery of local endangered species and is focused on incorporating genetic analyses into a behavioral and ecological understanding of these endangered species to inform landscape level management of fragmented populations.

Dr. Julia Young's research at Utah State University focuses on behavior, ecology, and management of carnivores and beavers. Her research aims to reduce negative human-wildlife interactions to facilitate coexistence.
