Wildlife Migrations in the West
April 19 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
In the finale of ONDA’s 2022 High Desert Speaker Series, professor Arthur Middleton will cover the basic ecology of ungulate migrations in the western United States. He’ll then profile threats to these migrations, including climate and land-use change, as well as barriers to migration like roads and fences. With a nod to the future, Arthur will also discuss some emerging models and opportunities for collaborative conservation of important migrations — all more relevant than ever to Oregon’s high desert and the species that move through the sagebrush sea.
About the Speaker
Arthur Middleton is an assistant professor of wildlife management and policy at UC Berkeley. His earliest work with wildlife was as a falconer and raptor biologist. He later received graduate training in environmental management at Yale University, and in ecology at the University of Wyoming. Arthur’s group at Berkeley studies the effects of environmental change on the behavioral, population, and community ecology of wide-ranging wildlife, with emphasis on the development of solutions to human-wildlife conflicts. Currently the group maintains active field programs in the Northern Rockies of the western US and in the Andean and Patagonian Steppe of Argentina.
