"wildlife, native environments, and contemporary human-modified landscapes"
My name is Ty Werdel and I am a Vice Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellow at Texas A&M University in the Department of Rangeland, Wildlife and Fisheries Management. My research interests include the fields of Wildlife Management (threatened/endangered to big game species) and Landscape Ecology. My work addresses questions that provide insight (i.e., management implications, conservation status, restoration opportunities) into the relationships between wildlife, native environments, and contemporary human-modified landscapes. I am committed to fostering a diverse learning environment to promote stewardship of our natural resources and training of future wildlife professionals.
