The Gilbert Lab asks how animal behavior, populations, and communities respond to environmental change. The goal of our work is to improve conservation and management of wildlife in the modern world.


We work closely with management agencies, non-governmental organizations, and stakeholders to identify wildlife research questions that are important for society and ecosystem health, and we answer these questions in a diverse array of habitats and systems, from Alaska's temperate rainforest to Canada's boreal forest and the rugged landscapes of the Mountain West. 

We are always open to new collaborations, so if you are interested in working with us, please get in touch.
