Research
Animal ecology: reproductive success, reproduction strategy, population dynamics, mammal conservation.

My research group is interested in understanding how environmental changes (natural and artificial) effects population dynamics and the evolution of mammals. These environmental changes include population density, parasites, predators and hunting. Our basic technique is a long-term follow-up on reproductive success, survival, weight and the behaviour of marked individuals. Local, national and international collaborators has allowed the presence of an array of my research programs on many study sites. My current research involves American mouflons, chamois, caribous and grey kangaroos. As well as having fundamental importance, my research also allows the guidance of conservation and the management of studied species.
