Evolutionary concepts are being applied to ecological studies to explain the evolution and maintenance of reproductive rates, growth rates, longevity, and dispersal patterns of small mammals in northern environments. Comparisons of ecological strategies of related mammals between moderate (long-season) and restricted (short-season) environments contribute to our understanding of the ecological adjustments required for mammals to exist in the north. Most of our current research is conducted in a short-season environment in southwestern Alberta.
"While our research continues in the near future I am no longer accepting new graduate students, in preparation for retirement."
