Primary interests

Brad is currently involved in two projects: The UMass Landscape Ecology Program’s Biodiversity Project project, and a field study of Blanding’s turtles in eastern Massachusetts with the Massachusetts Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit. These projects are both concerned with landscape-scale conservation, and are complementary examples of coarse- and fine-filter approaches. Brad is interested in research that supports a proactive approach to conservation by developing coarse-filter multi-species and community-based approaches and integrating these approaches with more traditional fine-filter approaches focused on endangered species.

Current Projects

  • The UMass Landscape Ecology Program’s Biodiversity Project project
  • Blanding’s turtles in eastern Massachusetts with the Massachusetts Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit.
