Marty is a PhD student in the School of BioSciences, co-supervised by Dr. Therésa Jones.  He completed a Masters of the Environment in December 2016 with myself and Dr. Jones on the effects of different lighting technologies on the abundance and diversity of invertebrate communities in urban ecosystems. He is continuing and expanding upon this work for his PhD.

 

Shayla Solomon (BS) – Shayla is a BS (Biology) student at Western Oregon University focussed on understanding the ecological responses of insect communities to oak restoration, and is co-supervised with Drs. Ava Howard and Jeff Snyder.

Oswaldo Moreno (BS) – Oswaldo is a BS (Biology) student at Western Oregon University focussed on investigating the interactions between oak reproduction and insects in the context of habitat restoration. He is co-supervised with Drs. Ava Howard and Jeff Snyder.

Henry Roberts (BS) – Henry is a BS (Biology) student at Western Oregon University focussed on understanding the eco-physiological responses of oak trees to habitat restoration, and is co-supervised with Drs. Ava Howard and Jeff Snyder.

Samantha Sackett (BS) – Sam is a BS (Biology) student at Western Oregon University focussed on investigating the responses of bird communities to oak ecosystem restoration. She is co-supervised with Drs. Jeff Snyder and Ava Howard

Svetlana Goloviznina (BS) – Svetlana is a BS (Biology) student at Western Oregon University who is currently working on researching and developing a citizen science mobile phone app to be used to monitor endangered Western Pond Turtles, in collaboration with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Jared Shorten (BS) – Jared is a BS (Biology) student at Western Oregon University who is examining the interactions between aposematic coloration, anti predator behavior, and toxicity in rough-skinned newts, in a collaborative project with Dr. Amber Stokes at California State University Bakersfield.

Blake Looney (BS, MEd) – Blake is a MEd student at Western Oregon University who completed an undergraduate project on the effects of human recreation on reptile abundance and diversity at an urban park, in collaboration with Dr. Ashley D’Antonio at Oregon State University. He is currently continuing to analyse and write up this work.
