April: Shorebird Ecology and Conservation: Dealing with Droughts and Deluges on the Southern High Plains

Craig A. Davis, a professor in the Natural Resource Ecology and Management Department at Oklahoma State, will be the guest presenter at the April 15 meeting.

Craig received his B.S. in natural resources with distinction in wildlife management from Ohio State University in 1988 and his M.S. in wildlife biology from Iowa State University in 1991 where he studied the ecology of wet meadow invertebrates and sandhill crane foraging ecology. He completed his Ph.D. from Texas Tech University in 1996 where he studied the ecology and management of shorebirds in the Playa Lakes Region of Texas.

Following his Ph.D., Craig spent a year as a temporary faculty member at the University of Rhode Island and four years as the avian ecologist for the Platte River Whooping Crane Trust in central Nebraska.

Craig is currently Professor and Bollenbach Chair in Wildlife Management in the Natural Resource Ecology and Management Department at Oklahoma State University.  He has published 80 peer-reviewed articles in a wide variety of journals including Ecological Applications, Journal of Applied Ecology. In 2013, Craig co-edited a three volume book on Wetland Research Techniques.

Craig’s research has focused on several research areas including the response of grassland birds to fire-grazing interactions, assessment and classification of wetlands, wetland bird ecology, aquatic and terrestrial invertebrate ecology, and upland gamebird ecology and management. Craig currently teaches two undergraduate courses (Wildlife Management Techniques and Wetland Ecology and Management) and one graduate course (Wetland Wildlife Ecology).
