This project is focused on understanding what factors influence variation in black bear population density across the province of Ontario. We are using non-invasive sampling and spatial capture-recapture models to estimate black bear population density and relate variation in density to factors such as harvest, habitat fragmentation and climate.
The focus of this research is to understnad how natural gas development influences the behavior and population dynamics of mule deer. Natural gas development increased rapidly throughout western North America through the 2000s.
